The clinical research, safety and results from this migraine treatment program are revolutionizing how migraines and headaches are treated. Many of our patients find relief that can last for days and, after following the treatment plan, their need for prescription medication is eliminated.

Our Protocol changes this with a nasal spray technique that stops the pain at the nerve that controls head pain.

- Cluster Headaches
- Trigeminal Neuralgia
- Chronic Pregnancy Headaches
- Head Pain from Fibromyalgia
- Atypical Head Pain
Anyone who suffers from severe headaches, migraines and atypical head pain understands the frustration with these OTC solutions and pharmaceutical painkillers; the relief is only temporary and the pain medication does nothing to prevent the next impending headache or migraine.
That’s what makes our Treatment so exciting. It’s a whole new approach that provides fast, safe, long term migraine relief. The Treatment is even safe for pregnant women.
Treating the Source of Your Head Pain
Scientists have discovered that the most common types of migraines, headaches, and facial pain symptoms are controlled by a nerve cluster called the Sphenopalatine Ganglion (SPG) and the Trigeminal Nerve (TN). This is a nerve located in a difficult to reach area of the nasal cavity. The biggest challenge in treating the SPG and TN for headaches, migraines and face pain has been getting the medication directly to the nerves to provide immediate relief without using a painful or invasive treatment. We overcome this challenge by providing a nasal spray that can get directly to the SPG and TN endings without pain or discomfort.
The Technology: Simple as a Nasal Spray!
The medical technology is the innovative applicator and simple nasal spray. Unlike other nasal spray applications, the revolutionary Tx360® nasal applicator has a soft, flexible extension that allows the anesthetic agent to be sprayed directly onto the SPG and TN. The design of the Tx360® guides the spray upward and is engineered to accurately deliver only a small amount of medication making the protocol extremely safe.
Fast and Safe: No Long-Term Complications
Unlike OTC painkillers and prescription medications, our treatment doesn’t have potentially dangerous side effects or complications. As a total head pain treatment plan, Our treatment has been clinically proven to provide long-term relief from headaches and migraines. Those who have experienced chronic migraines and headaches for years may require a treatment program to experience a long term benefit.

What Is Our Treatment?
The treatment is a headache, migraine and face pain treatment designed to safely and quickly treat the pain and discomfort associated with headaches, migraines and facial pain. The protocol is comprised of two stages.
- The first stage stops the pain with a nerve block. This alleviates any pain associated with the headache or migraine. This stage is referred to as the medical component.
- The second stage identifies, treats and rehabilitates the underlying condition. This stage is known as the physical component.
These two stages combined are effective in providing long term migraine, headache and facial pain relief.
Our physicians use clinical testing to make sure that the patient qualifies for the treatment. The data from standard diagnostic testing helps diagnose the cause of the headaches, migraines, or face pain.
After the consultation and exam and the patient comes back for their findings, the physician will quickly prepare the patient for the procedure to administer the nasal spray nerve block. This will provide pain relief associated with the headache or migraine or Facial Pain. This procedure targets a nerve deep in the nasal cavity called the Sphenopalatine Ganglion (SPG) and Trigeminal Nerve (TN).
Due to the location of the nerve, a specialized FDA cleared applicator is used to deliver the medication directly into the Nasal Cavity. Patients have gone from an 8 to a 2 pain rating, using the Numeric Rating Scale (NRS-11), in just seconds of using the procedure.
Northland Physical Medicine and Lifeworks Integrated Health will evaluate the diagnostic test results and feedback from the patient to find any biomechanical imbalances or other physiological issues that may be triggering the severe headaches, migraines, and facial pain. Physical treatment will include, but is not limited to corrective rehab, chiropractic adjustments, corrective ergonomic recommendations, cranial therapy, diet modifications, and stress management therapy.
Although pain may be alleviated after the first application of the treatment, headache relief will only be long-term if the patient completes the entire treatment program. Patients who have experienced chronic migraines or headaches for years will need the full treatment to gain the maximum benefits. Clinical tests recommend that the patient schedule treatments for a 4 – 6-week time frame.
