About Nerve Blocks

To prevent plexus or ganglion nerves from transmitting pain signals to the brain, a nerve block is an anesthetic or anti-inflammatory injection that reduces uncomfortable symptoms. Nerve blocks can help with a variety of pain conditions, and they are formulated with different types of numbing agents. If you suffer from an injury, spinal arthritis, or cancer-related pain, a nerve block is an effective treatment to help you live a better quality of life. However, it may not be the best treatment option for all patients. Generally, we only recommend this type of therapy for patients who have tried more conservation treatment methods but still experience severe pain. Please call Tricity Pain Associates in Corpus Christi, TX to schedule an appointment with our compassionate pain management doctors to determine if a nerve block works best for you.

Nerve Block Treatment

Depending on your needs, concerns, and symptoms, we provide a variety of nerve blocks made from different types of formulas, including a stellate ganglion block, a TAP block, and a joint block. In a private and comfortable treatment room, our skilled pain management doctors can complete the procedure in about 10 – 15 minutes. After the treatment, you can return home, but you should avoid driving and intense activity for at least 24 hours. A nerve block can greatly reduce pain, but it only offers temporary relief. Patients will need to schedule multiple appointments to maintain results. Once we have completed the treatment, we will discuss how often you should schedule your follow-up appointments.
