Occipital Nerve Block Treatment Procedure

An occipital nerve block treatment procedure is an injection of numbing medication and cortisone (steroid) into the scalp at the back of the head. The occipital nerve block treatment procedure is used in the diagnosis and treatment of occipital neuralgia (nerve pain) or tension headaches. If you respond well to the occipital nerve block treatment procedure, the treatment may be repeated. Although uncommon, risks of the occipital nerve block treatment procedure may include bleeding, infection, nerve damage and allergic reactions to the medication.
