Peripheral Nerve Blocks

     Nerve pain can be disabling and difficult to control using medications. Chronic nerve pain may be caused by injury, health conditions, or complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS). One effective option is a peripheral nerve block injection that can stop the symptoms associated with peripheral nerve disorders. Our pain specialists at Airport Plaza Spine & Wellness offer peripheral nerve blocks as one of our treatment options to give our patients relief.

     Peripheral nerve pain can involve tingling, burning, and pain in the area near an injury or in the hands, legs, or feet of those with CRPS or diabetic nerve disorders. Peripheral nerve disorders can be acute or chronic, depending on the cause and nature of the nerve damage or irritation.

     Peripheral nerve block injections for pain management work similar to nerve blocks used for anesthesia purposes. The idea is to block signals to the brain by inserting an anesthetic and/or long-lasting steroid near the nerves. To perform the procedure, Fluoroscopic or ultrasound imaging is used to direct and guide the injection to the correct position. The anesthesia can offer quick relief from pain while the steroid may offer a long-lasting reduction of peripheral nerve pain for a few or several months, depending on the condition and patient.

      Peripheral nerve block injections can be used for a variety of nerve disorders. If you have chronic pain from a peripheral nerve disorder, contact us at Wesley Chapel Spine and Sports Medicine to schedule your appointment to learn more about managing chronic nerve pain.
