Occipital Neuralgia

Occipital neuralgia is described as a painful condition arising from the occipital nerve, which is located at the back of the head near the base of the skull.

What causes occipital neuralgia? This is often the result of an injury or myofascial pain entrapping the nerve, although it may also occur spontaneously. The diagnosis and/or treatment for this condition is an occipital nerve block.
