Head and Face Pain treated by an expert pain doctor

  • Occipital Neuralgia 

Occipital Neuralgia is a condition in which the occipital nerves, the nerves that run through the scalp, are injured or inflamed. This causes headaches that feel like severe piercing, throbbing or shock-like pain in the upper neck, back of the head or behind the ears.​

A small injection of anti-inflammatory medicine can cure it.

  • Tension-type headache 

A tension-type headache (TTH) is generally a mild to moderate pain that's often described as feeling like a tight band around the head. A tension-type headache is the most common type of headache. 

Finding the trigger points on the scalp and giving tiny injections cures it.

Tension-type headaches can be difficult to distinguish from migraines

Unlike some forms of migraine, tension-type headaches usually aren't associated with visual disturbances, nausea or vomiting. Although physical activity typically aggravates migraine pain, it doesn't make tension-type headache pain worse. An increased sensitivity to either light or sound is uncommon with a tension-type headache, but generally present in migrains.


  • Migraine 

Migraine is a strong headache that has unique characteristics like prodrome, aura and post-drome. Most of the chronic headaches are wrongly labelled as a migraine that leads to prolonged incorrect treatment. At Reliv, a correct diagnosis is made after thorough examination.  Correct diagnosis is followed by suitable medications that are either preventive or abortive. There are specialised procedures to achieve long term cure without depending on daily tablets.

  • Cluster Headache 

  • Atypical Facial Pain 

  • Trigeminal Neuralgia 

  • Central Post-stroke pain
