Nerve Blocks for Pain Relief

A cervical selective nerve root block or just ‘nerve block’ relieves pain by interrupting how pain signals are sent to your brain. This is done by injecting a specific epidural steroid into or around a nerve or into the spine. Nerve blocks are used to treat chronic pain without the bad side effects of other treatments. Nerve blocks can treat neck, upper back, shoulder and arm pain.

WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER NERVE BLOCK TREATMENT

Nerve blocks numb the nerves and relieve pain by disrupting the pain signal sent between the nerve and brain. Nerve blocks for chronic pain can provide pain relief for anywhere between 6 to 12 months. Depending on the type of nerve block, pain may be numbed for a long or short period of time.
