The Mi-Rx™ protocol, is an integrated headache management and treatment program that addresses all aspects of head pain. To achieve this effectively, a series of Medical procedures are integrated with a Physical medicine/therapy treatment plan.

Medical Doctor Component

The Medical Doctor component of the program addresses the physiological and chemical imbalances that lead to migraines and associated headaches. The Medical Doctor administers a series of Bilateral Sphenopalatine nerve blocks via the nasal passages. These blocks are done over the course of 4 to 6 weeks.

These nerve blocks are administered with the help of the newly FDA approved device called the Tx360® and an anesthetic solution. The Tx360® allows the doctor to administer the nerve block essentially via a nasal spray, a simple painless procedure that takes less than a minute.

Physical Therapy Component

Physical Medicine/therapy component of the program, address any biomechanical imbalances which, induce cervicogenic or tension headaches.

This plan should be a minimum of 6 weeks in length and all treatments should be administered congruently with the sphenopalatine nerve blocks. It is important to address any other cervical issues that maybe attributing to the head pain in any way.

The treatment plan may include massage therapy, cranial therapy, physical therapy and chiropractic adjustments.
