  1. 2021;5;409-411 Wireless Peripheral Nerve Stimulation at C2 and C3 to Treat Persistent Daily Headaches and Occipital Neuralgia
    Case Report
    Alaa Abd-Elsayed, MD.

BACKGROUND: Headache is a very challenging condition to treat. We are presenting a unique approach for treating headache and occipital neuralgia that involves placing a wireless peripheral nerve stimulation system at the C2 and C3 levels.

CASE REPORT: A 39-year-old man with a history of headache and occipital neuralgia resistant to several treatment modalities was treated with occipital nerve stimulation at the levels of C2 and C3.

CONCLUSION: Peripheral nerve stimulation at the C2 and C3 levels is a unique approach for treating resistant headache and occipital neuralgia.

KEY WORDS: C2, C3, headache, occipital neuralgia, peripheral nerve stimulation
