WHAT RELIEF FEELS LIKE - PUBLISHED DATA DEMONSTRATE THE RESULTS.
The concept that peripheral nerves in the head and neck could be responsible for chronic headaches in selected patients originated with Dr. Bahman Guyuron in Cleveland, Ohio. Dr. Guyuron was chairman of the Department of Plastic Surgery at Case Western Reserve University and a well-respected, aesthetic plastic surgeon. He noted that in a sub-population of his cosmetic browlift patients, the removal of the small muscles in between the eyebrows not only gave them a youthful look, but also improved or in some cases eliminated their migraine headaches. As he saw more and more such results, he began to realize that they were no fluke. Eventually, after studying these patients very carefully he learned that what he was really doing was un-pinching small nerves in these areas thereby removing a source of nerve irritation that was causing the headache symptoms.
