Sphenopalatine Ganglion Injections for Pain Relief

The sphenopalatine ganglion, which is located just behind the maxillary sinus, behind the cheek, can carry the pain information for multiple disorders, including atypical facial pain, post herpetic neuralgia, trigeminal neuralgia, migraine headaches, and cluster headaches.

Injections and radiofrequency ablation of the sphenopalatine are easily performed and can provide definitive therapy for conditions, which are otherwise very difficult to control.
