Pulsed Radiofrequency to the Occipital Nerve
Occipital neuralgia, upper neck pain and headache are common complaints linked with degenerative changes in the structures of the cervical spine (or neck). Pulsed radiofrequency treatment to the occipital nerve can help to ease the pain of this condition, and associated scalp pain and sensitivity. It is a minimally invasive procedure which can be repeated to maximise the pain relieving benefits.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner. Northern Pain Centre can facilitate you obtaining a second opinion. Please discuss this with us.
