At SOLUTIONS Pain & Spine, we believe everyone deserves to live a pain-free life. Our multidisciplinary team of pain management experts is dedicated to providing innovative, personalized treatment plans for our patients. Among our comprehensive array of services, we are proud to offer Sympathetic Blocks, a cutting-edge therapeutic procedure to help manage chronic pain.
What are Sympathetic Blocks?
The sympathetic nervous system, a part of your autonomic nervous system, can sometimes transmit pain signals from various parts of the body to the brain, leading to chronic discomfort. Sympathetic Blocks are specialized procedures aimed at interrupting these pain signals. This intervention is often utilized for managing chronic pain conditions such as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD), and pain following herpes zoster or “shingles.”
Our Expertise in Sympathetic Blocks
Our team at SOLUTIONS Pain & Spine, comprising experienced physicians and pain management specialists, excels in delivering effective sympathetic blocks. We leverage advanced imaging technology to accurately locate the sympathetic nerves and administer the block, ensuring precision and effectiveness.
The sympathetic block procedure is typically brief, lasting less than an hour, and is performed in a safe, controlled environment. Using real-time fluoroscopic or ultrasound guidance, our specialists introduce a thin needle to the appropriate area and inject a local anesthetic. This effectively blocks the pain signals, providing substantial relief to our patients.
Benefits of Sympathetic Blocks
Sympathetic blocks can provide significant pain relief, helping patients reclaim their normal daily activities. This procedure also aids in reducing inflammation, improving mobility, and minimizing the need for oral pain medication.
