Ultrasound Guided Blocks

Ultrasound Guided Blocks involve the use of ultrasound imaging to accurately guide the injection of local anesthetics near specific nerves or bundles of nerves. The high-resolution images from the ultrasound allow our pain specialists to visualize the needle in real-time and ensure it is accurately placed, improving the effectiveness of the block and reducing potential complications.

Who is a Candidate for Ultrasound Guided Blocks?

Ultrasound Guided Blocks are typically recommended for patients who suffer from chronic pain conditions that have not responded to more conservative treatments. These blocks can be used to manage a wide range of conditions, including neuralgia, chronic regional pain syndrome, and certain types of headaches. Our team at SOLUTIONS Pain and Spine will conduct a comprehensive evaluation to determine if Ultrasound Guided Blocks are right for your condition.

What Can I Expect During the Procedure?

During the procedure, you will lie in a position that gives our specialist the best access to the treatment area. After applying a clear gel to the skin, the specialist will move the ultrasound probe over the area, generating images of the underlying tissue and nerves. This guidance allows the specialist to precisely inject the medication near the targeted nerves.

Most Ultrasound Guided Blocks take less than an hour, and patients can usually return home on the same day. Some patients may experience immediate pain relief, while for others, the full benefits of the block may take a few days to manifest.
