About the Therapy

There is no cure for cluster headache. Current treatments to relieve symptoms include preventive and acute abortive drugs such as injectable medications and inhaled oxygen. As some patients are not candidates for these medications, and others may experience significant side effects or have risk factors that prevent taking these medications, there has been a considerable need for a new treatment option.

The sphenopalatine ganglion (SPG) is a nerve bundle located behind the nose. It is part of the autonomic nervous system. The SPG is directly involved in the cluster attack pain pathway. Doctors have targeted the SPG for a long time with various procedures intended to relieve cluster attack pain.

Stimulation of the SPG offers a reversible and adjustable option to control the debilitating pain of cluster headache.
