Chronic headache pain not possible of being cured with locally injected steroidsNo additional benefits are noticed when steroids are added to local anesthetics for treating daily headaches, as per a study by neurologists at the Jefferson Headache Center at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia.

The study findings were obtained after closely evaluating 29 men and women with chronic daily headaches who were divided into two groups. One of the groups was administered with GONB (greater occipital nerve block) with lidocaine and bupivicaine alone and the other group was administered with the two drugs with steroids.

Dr. Ashkenazi noted that there is a possibility that he and his team will find steroids lengthening the anti-inflammatory effects of injections and next four weeks of post-therapy data and recruiting more patients for conducting trials is their target now.

The study findings were revealed after being collected by looking at 29 men and women with daily headaches of chronic nature. The patients were divided into two groups, one group was administered with GONB (greater occipital nerve block) with lidocaine and bupivicaine alone and the second group was administered with the two drugs with steroids.

Dr. Ashkenazi and his team are now expected to focus at the next 4 weeks of post-therapy data besides recruiting more patients for trials.

Locally injected steroids may not be effective for chronic headache painAccording to a study by neurologists at the Jefferson Headache Center at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia, there is no benefit of adding steroids to local anesthetics when it comes to treating daily headaches.

Avi Ashkenazi, M.D., assistant professor of neurology at Jefferson Medical College of Thomas Jefferson University, remarked after carefully analyzing two groups – one on GONB treatment with lidocaine and bupivicaine and second one on the two drugs with steroids. It was revealed that both treatments were almost equally effective and thus there is no need for the medical practitioners to recommend steroids to their patients.

Dr. Ashkenazi and his team are expected to have a close look at the post-therapy data and recruiting more patients to find if steroids prove effective for lengthening anti-inflammatory effect of the injection.

It is believed that the study results will offer a new paradigm to members of the medical fraternity while advising steroids to their patients.
