A headache is pain anywhere in the region of the head or neck. A “headache” is not a condition but a symptom having many possible causes. There are over 200 di!erent classifications of headaches, making it di!icult to identify and treat.The MiRx™ protocol was specifically designed to be an integrated treatment program to address the di!erent aspects of head pain. To achieve this electively, a series of medical procedures are integrated with a physical therapy treatment plan over a 4 to 6 week period. The medical procedures in the program treat the chemical imbalances which lead to migraines and associated headaches. Whereas, the physical therapy component of the program, addresses any biomechanical imbalances which cause neck pain and lead to tension headaches. The developers of the MiRx™ protocol have incorporated a revolutionary new FDA approved technology which essentially allows a previously very uncomfortable and painful nerve block procedure to be done now as a nasal spray. Painless and quick. Patients see relief in minutes.
This nerve block procedure has been done for the last 100 years with cue tips and X-ray guided injections to numb out a specific bundle of nerves (Sphenopalatine ganglion-SPG), deep within the nasal cavity. The SPG has been a target site for the treatment of severe headache pain, mainly applying lidocaine and other agents to the SPG to achieve a nerve block. The nerve block has been known to provide immediate head pain relief in chemically induced headpain. The revolutionary new TX360™ Nasal Applicator allows the SPG nerve block to be done essentially as a nasal spray in less then a minute.
Hence, the MiRx™ protocol integrates a series of nerve blocks with a physical therapy treatment plan to provide total head pain relief, while treating all the contributing factors which lead to head pain. Although the MiRx™ protocal has been named a"er its great success in treating chronic and acute migraines.
