Nerve Root Blocks
A Nerve Root Block is a targeted procedure that injects medication directly into or around the nerve root to alleviate pain signals. The injection typically contains a local anesthetic and a steroid medication. This procedure can provide immediate relief from acute pain and decrease inflammation, providing longer-term relief.
Who is a Candidate for a Nerve Root Block?
Nerve Root Blocks are generally recommended for individuals experiencing localized pain resulting from conditions such as herniated discs, spinal stenosis, or nerve injuries. At SOLUTIONS Pain and Spine, our expert team will perform a comprehensive evaluation to determine if a Nerve Root Block is the optimal treatment for your specific needs.
What Can I Expect During the Procedure?
Performed on an outpatient basis, a Nerve Root Block usually takes less than 30 minutes. You’ll be positioned on your stomach or side, and the area to be treated will be sterilized and numbed. Using X-ray guidance, our highly skilled pain management specialist will accurately insert the needle and administer the medication around the nerve root. Post-procedure, patients often experience noticeable pain relief within a few days.
