When Is Nerve Block Therapy Useful?August 2, 2018
If you are experiencing pain in your body that shows no sign of going away, you might be an ideal candidate for nerve block therapy. This is a solution that has shown results in relieving many different times of pain, and even avoid surgery in some cases.
A nerve block therapy is a pain relief treatment that works by physically disrupting the connection between the affected nerves and the brain. It is known that pain is a sensation that is generated by signals sent from the nerves to the brain, so one way to put an end to pain is simply by blocking the pain signals entirely. Nerve blocks are effective in many parts of the body, including the face, forehead, neck, back, limbs, and the pelvic area.
Nerve block treatments involve injecting a combination of an anesthetic and a long-lasting steroid directly into the affected nerve root of the body. Each patient responds differently to nerve block therapy, with some reporting lasting relief for months at a time. When the relief wears off, patients are able to return for multiple nerve block therapies for as long as the pain continues.
If you are experiencing pain in your body but you don’t want or are unable to undergo an invasive procedure for pain relief, a nerve block therapy might be the ideal solution for you.
