What is a headache block?
Having regular, painful headaches can be hard to endure if at-home remedies and over-the-counter pain relievers do not dull the pain. At Preston Surgery Center, we offer consultations with our board-certified and fellowship-trained pain management specialists, Dr. Mohammad Tariq, Dr. David Keelen, and Dr. Gabor Racz, for headache pain services. One of our treatment options can be a headache block. After careful consideration of your symptoms, examination, imaging (if needed), and review of your health history with one of our trusted physicians, you may qualify for:
- Occipital nerve block (injections are placed at the back of your head and above your neck)
- Atlantoaxial nerve block (injections are placed in the neck)
- Atlantooccipital nerve block (injections are placed in the neck)
Our pain management specialists are highly trained to perform headache blocks and can do so in our AAAASF-accredited surgery center on-site in Frisco, TX. Drs. Tariq, Keelen, and Racz offer this treatment with other options for a comprehensive approach to manage your pain, such as:
- Medication management
- Physical therapy
- Behavioral counseling
- Chiropractic and acupuncture services
- Minimally invasive pain procedures
We invite you to make an appointment by requesting one online or by calling our friendly front office staff. Let's get a head start on your headache pain relief.

Helping You With Tough Headaches
If you are suffering from headaches and you are intimidated by the thought of painful interventions, then headache blocks may be a great solution for you. After one of our pain management specialists, Drs. Tariq, Keelen, or Racz, looks at the detailed images (MRI or CT scan) of your brain and blood vessels during your consultation, a treatment plan can be made. Headache blocks (occipital, atlantoaxial, and atlantooccipital) can relieve your pain without major risks or downtime. To find out more about headache blocks or to book a consultation, call Preston Surgery Center in Frisco, TX to begin your journey to better health.
