Occipital Nerve Blocks (ONB) are just one way we can treat headaches here at Pain Specialists of Cincinnati. In this procedure, a small amount of steroids and numbing agent are introduced along the occipital nerve, providing the opportunity for significant reduction in inflammation and in turn a significant reduction in the amount of headaches you may experience!
Contact us today to set up a consult, or for regular patients, talk to the staff at your next follow up!
