Peripheral Nerve Block Injections

Peripheral Nerve Block Injections

A peripheral nerve block injection is considered an interventional therapy for patients who suffer from headaches, pelvic pain, neuropathy and several other types of pain.

A peripheral nerve block also can be used as a diagnostic tool. If the nerve is blocked and pain relief is realized from the procedure, your doctor reasonably can assume they discovered the specific pain source. During a peripheral nerve block injection a patient is administered a local anesthetic to numb the injection site.

The doctor then inserts a needle into the area in pain to deliver an anesthetic and steroid solution to the damaged nerves. The solution stops the nerves from sending pain signals to the brain. A local anesthetic given shortly before the procedure means patients are not likely to feel pain stemming from the injection.

However, patients may feel a small pressure near site of the injection. The procedure normally takes only a few minutes to complete.
