Nerve Blocks

Nerve blocks are used to manage various types of pain by interrupting the communication between nerves and the brain.

This technique has proven instrumental in providing relief for those dealing with pain conditions.

How Nerve Blocks Work:

Nerve blocks work by injecting local anesthetics or other medications near specific nerves to temporarily block pain signals. By disrupting the transmission of pain messages along the nerve pathways, nerve blocks effectively alleviate pain and provide relief to targeted areas. This procedure can be applied to various regions of the body, making it a versatile and valuable tool in pain management.

Types of Nerve Blocks:

At New York Pain Management Group, we offer a range of nerve block options to address different pain conditions, including:

  • Epidural nerve block

    Targeting the epidural space around the spinal cord, this block is often used for back and leg pain.

  • Facet joint block

    Focusing on the small joints along the spine, this block can alleviate pain caused by arthritis or injury.

  • Peripheral nerve block

    Applied to specific nerves outside the spine, this block is effective for conditions like peripheral neuropathy.

  • Sympathetic nerve block

    Targeting the sympathetic nerves, this block is beneficial for conditions such as complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS).

Benefits and Effectiveness of Nerve Blocks:

The advantages of nerve blocks extend beyond pain relief. These procedures offer targeted results, reducing the need for systemic medications and minimizing potential side effects. The localized approach ensures that only the affected area receives treatment, enhancing the precision and effectiveness of the procedure.


When to Consider Nerve Blocks:

You may be a candidate for nerve blocks if conservative treatments like medications or physical therapy have not provided sufficient relief. If your pain is central to a specific nerve or region, targeted intervention may be beneficial. Nerve blocks also present a non-invasive alternative for those who would like to avoid surgery.
