The New Procedure, And Why It’s Better
What makes the Prairie Spine & Pain Institute technique better?
The traditional SPG block procedures often require the patient to be sedated so the physician can navigate a Q-tip-like applicator through the nasal passage or with a long, thin needle through the side of the head to deliver medication to the SPG. While eﬀective, it can be a risky procedure.
Our SPG block procedure is minimally invasive and quick, with very little or no discomfort for the patient.
Prairie Spine & Pain Institute uses FDA reviewed and patented latex-free, single-use device that allows our physicians to swiftly and easily administer medication to the SPG.
