A "New Old Treatment" for Chronic Pain
Because it has been around for over a century, yet we are discovering new uses for it every day, Sphenopalatine Ganglion Block (SGB) is called a “new old treatment” for chronic pain. It affords relief, often immediate, for chronic low back and cervical (neck) pain and spasmodic torticollis, disc disease including sciatica, muscle spasm, chronic headache, cluster headache, migraine, facial pain, trigeminal neuralgia, fibromyalgia, arthritis, diabetic nerve pain, causalgia, and a variety of other conditions causing chronic pain.
Proven Pain Relief
Developed in the 1920s by the late Dr. Milton Reder (senior), and now offered in Boston by his son, Dr. Milton A. Reder, Sphenopalatine Ganglion Block (SGB) is a safe, proven, established, non-invasive, non-addictive, and painless treatment done in the doctor’s office that offers relief, often immediately, to patients suffering from chronic pain in the back, neck, extremities, face and head.
Dr. Reder (senior), an ear, nose and throat surgeon in New York City, treated many thousands of patients with SGB for 70 years, often doing over 100 treatments per day, 7 days a week, in his Manhattan office. (Read the delightful “Miracles on Park Avenue” for an account of his amazing life and work.) Dr. Milton A. Reder joined his practice in 1980, and now carries on the work in the Boston neighborhood of Brookline MA.
