Nerve Root Blocks for Chronic Pain Relief

Some patients who suffer from chronic pain can achieve real relief with nerve root blocks. This treatment involves injecting anesthesia and steroids into (or close to) a nerve to reduce inflammation, providing temporary relief from chronic pain. In some cases, nerve blocks can be part of a diagnostic program to identify the exact cause of chronic pain.

The injections target the root of the nerve where it exits the spine. It is with a real-time visualization of the area to ensure the injection site is identified correctly. The treatment may involve minor side effects, which can typically be relieved with an ice pack. The results in pain relief require a few days, while the steroids in the injections do their work in reducing inflammation.
