    Nerve-Related Headaches

    There are many patients suffering from headaches that are refractory to the usually medical treatment options that are currently available. Local compressive neuropathies of nerves in and around the head and neck may be responsible for a lot of a patient's symptoms.

    Dr. Maloney can treat many patients with headaches by identify the offending nerves. This will often require diagnostic blocks utilizing a local anesthetic.

    Appropriate candidates may be treated with botox or nerve decompression.

    Just like carpal tunnel syndrome can cause pain and tingling in the hand, compressions of certain nerves in the face and neck can be responsible for headaches and neck pain.

    Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

    There are several nerve related problems that affect the arms and hands. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is the most common. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome causes numbness and tingling in the thumb, index and middle fingers. Many times these sensations in the hand wake patients up at night, or their hands may go to sleep during normal activities. This numbness and tingling may come and go, or may be present all the time. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is caused by the median nerve being pinched or compressed at the wrist in the "Carpal Tunnel".

The typical patient is one that has already had some type of groin surgery such as a hernia repair or a cesarean section and has developed pain in the area of the operation. There are many nerves in that area that can be cut or damaged with routine surgery or trauma. Patients are typically cleared by their general surgeon first to make sure there are no other problems that would require their expertise.

    Morton's Neuromas

    Morton's Neuromas is another type of peripheral nerve problem in the foot caused by the repetitive compression of the common plantar digital nerve. This nerve lies between the heads of the metatarsal bones. Consequently, the neuroma that develops is not a true neuroma, but rather chronic nerve compression. Tight shoes and high heels can intensify this type of pain.
