Neural Prolotherapy For Migraines

The Houston Headache Institute is the only headache specialist team with the skills and insight to provide Neural Prolotherapy to patients in the Houston area. NPT is a powerful, straightforward treatment that can produce noticeable results in just minutes.

What is NPT and How Does it Work?

NPT operates on very simple principles, targeting nerves that can cause headache pain. A low-dose dextrose solution is introduced into the body through perineural injection – that is, injection near the site of a damaged or “entrapped” nerve. Nerves become entrapped due to physical compression, moving them out of their natural position and alignment. Perineural therapy leverages the unique properties of dextrose. This is a natural, simple sugar that is used by the brain as a principal energy source. No matter what you eat or drink, the nerves regularly demand dextrose and function optimally only when it is available. By introducing this substance in a targeted way, it becomes possible to reduce inflammation and enhance nerve function. This helps to “reset” nerves that may have become trapped in a sort of feedback loop, consistently sending pain signals to the brain when little stimulus is present.

NPT is recommended for any patient who is found to have chronic headache pain resulting from nerve-related problems. It is one of the only headache treatment modalities that can effectively help people suffering from neuropathic damage. NPT is not perfect for everyone. However, it is extremely safe, completely natural, requires no recovery time and is also very fast. It only takes a few minutes to diagnose and learn whether NPT therapy is the headache care alternative that you have been waiting for. In some cases, Houston headache patients may experience complete elimination of their pain. NPT is also useful for pain in other parts of the body, including:

  • Knees
  • Shoulders
  • Neck
  • Hips
  • Injured muscles
  • Joints damaged by repetitive stress like tennis elbow
  • The jaw, especially when afflicted with TMJ
  • The face, especially suffering from Bell’s palsy.
