“Having suffered from various types of headaches for most of my life, I visited the VAPWC as soon as they began offering the MiRx Protocol for headache relief. After 4 treatments, I noticed a significant reduction in the number and severity of my headaches. After 8 treatments (the full protocol), I am headache free. Only time will tell, but so far the Protocol has been extremely effective. Everyone at VAPWC is professional, courteous and provides great service.”

– Todd L., Ashburn VA

 

The Virginia Pain & Wellness Center is proud to be one of the few providers in the country of the MiRx Protocol, a revolutionary new painless and FDA approved treatment for Migraines (with or without aura) and other head pain caused by Cluster Headaches, Tension Headaches, Atypical Face Pain or Trigeminal Neuralgia.

The MiRx procedure is virtually painless AND is covered by most PPO insurances (call our office at 571-926-8918 and we can get your insurance benefits verified, free of charge). It involves a series of medical procedures that are integrated with a physical rehab plan over four to six weeks. The medical procedures are used to repair any chemical imbalances which lead to head pain and migraines while the physical rehab portion addresses any postural and biomechanical dysfunction which can lead to muscle tension and neck pain. Overall, this revolutionary head pain treatment is fast with minimal discomfort and provides swift relief.

The MiRx Protocol is made up of two parts:

  1. Medical Component: Our medical doctor administers a nasal spray over several visits which stops the reaction of the nervous system and alleviates the headache pain.
  2. Physical Component: We then treat and rehabilitate your underlying condition causing the migraines with physical rehabilitation.

These two steps have been proven in clinical studies to effectively eliminate the conditions causing headache or face pain, and work together to provide long-term headache relief.

How the MiRx Protocol Works:

Dr. Dal explains the MiRx Protocol:

The medical component of the MiRx protocol uses clinical testing to make sure you qualify for the treatment. The data collected also helps identify obvious triggers of the headaches. Most patients qualify for the procedure and are treated during the first visit. After the initial exam and free consultation, the MiRx doctor will prepare you for the procedure to quickly alleviates your headache. The procedure targets a nerve cluster with in the nasal cavity called the sphenopalatine ganglion. By using a specialized FDA cleared nasal applicator to deliver medication directly to this nerve cluster headache pain is nearly eliminated instantaneously. Many patients go from a pain rating of 8 to a pain rating of 2 in seconds. (Numeric Rating Scale (NRS-11))

The physical component of the MiRx Protocol will evaluate the diagnostic test results, and your feedback to find biomechanical imbalances, or other physiological conditions to be addressed for long-term headache pain relief. These are commonly refered to as triggers. This could include but not limited to, physical therapy, chiropractic adjustments, corrective ergonomic recommendations, cranial therapy, diet modifications, and stress management therapy.

Headache relief will only be long term if the patient follows the entire protocol. Clinical tests recommend a 4 – 6 week treatment schedule for the MiRx Protocol. Some patients can sustain long-term headache relief after just 1 treatment; however the chance of a re-occurring headache or face pain episodes is much greater if the physical component is ignored. For those that have experienced chronic migraines or headaches for years may require additional treatments.

Learn More About The MiRx Protocol:

People who suffer from headaches and migraines will spend more than $4 billion dollars annually by using over-the-counter (OTC) medications that only temporarily dull the pain their headaches and migraines cause. Anyone who suffers from severe headaches and migraines understands the frustration with these OTC solutions. The relief is only short and the OTC pain medication does nothing to prevent the next impending headache or migraine.

That’s what makes the MiRx Protocol so exciting. It’s a whole new approach with a goal of providing fast, safe, long term migraine relief.

Scientists have discovered that migraines, headaches, and facial pain are controlled by a nerve cluster called the Sphenopalantine Ganglion (SPG) located in a difficult to reach area of the nasal cavity. The biggest challenge in treating headaches and migraines has been getting the medication or an anesthetic agent directly to the SPG to provide immediate relief without using painful or invasive treatment. MiRx overcomes this challenge by providing a nasal spray that is accurately applied to the SPG without pain or discomfort.

It all starts with an inventive applicator that provides a simple nasal spray. Unlike other nasal spray applications, the revolutionary Tx360® nasal applicator has a soft, flexible extension that directs the anesthetic agent to be sprayed directly onto the Sphenopalatine Ganglion nerve cluster.

The result is instantaneous headache relief. The treatment takes less than a minute and most patients report a decrease in pain within a few seconds.

Unlike OTC painkillers and prescription medications, MiRx Protocol doesn’t have potentially dangerous side effects or complications. As a total headache treatment plan, MiRx Protocol has been clinically proven to provide long-term relief of headaches and migraines. While some patients can experience lasting migraine relief after just one treatment, those who have experienced chronic migraines and headaches for years may require multiple treatments to experience the maximum benefit.
