BVH - Pain Management

Pain Management Clinic in Kansas City

Living with chronic pain can have a wide range of detrimental effects on one’s physical and emotional health, affecting everything from sleep to mental well-being to participation in day-to-day activities. What’s more, the exhausting effects of constant pain can contribute to musculoskeletal and cardiovascular decline. Fortunately, there are solutions out there for those who suffer from chronic pain. The Pain & Migraine Center at Blue Valley Hospital employs a comprehensive approach to treating all types of pain. Our experienced pain specialists design an individualized treatment plan for each patient in order to address his or her specific injury or chronic condition and provide treatment that targets the root cause of chronic pain to offer long-term relief.

The SphenoCath Procedure for Headache Pain Relief

According to data from the Migraine Research Foundation, nearly 40 million Americans suffer from chronic headache disorders. Even worse, more than 60% of those who suffer from chronic headaches have given up on their prescription medications and other treatments due to unpleasant side effects, excessive expense, or simply a lack of consistent pain relief. At Blue Valley Hospital, we believe that no one should have to live with chronic headache pain, which is why we’re committed to finding the newest and best interventions to provide all of our patients with lasting relief.

For those who suffer from chronic migraine headaches, tension headaches, cluster headaches, or other chronic headache pain, the new SphenoCath procedure may be the treatment you’ve been looking for. The sphenopalatine ganglion (SPG) is a collection of neurons associated with headache pain. Previous SPG blocks have been successful in providing long-term relief for headache sufferers, but the procedures have often been invasive and uncomfortable. With SphenoCath, the pain specialists at Blue Valley Hospital can offer long-lasting treatment that’s quick and minimally-invasive, at a fraction of the cost of earlier treatments.
