Nerve blocks are designed to stop the feelings that go through targeted nerves. A suprascapular nerve block can relieve your shoulder pain long enough for you to complete your physical therapy. An intercostal nerve block stops pain in nerves in your chest. An ilioinguinal and an iliohypogastric nerve block give you relief from groin pain. Dr. Melepura, a qualified pain doctor in Manhattan, NY can offer a variety of options to treat your pain. Make an appointment in our pain and injury clinic today.
Sometimes, following an injury or before you begin physical therapy, your body needs a break from the onslaught of pain. Receiving a nerve block gives your body just that: temporary relief. And that may be all you need to get on track with your new exercise regimen or allow your body sufficient rest as it heals.
Our NY pain doctor provides nerve block injections in a variety of places where your suffering may originate, including your:
- Upper thigh
Nerve block injections are commonly used on professional and amateur athletes who suffer with upper back pain, lower back pain and middle back pain. Whether you have a back injury, a severe back sprain, a pulled muscle in your back or facet joint syndrome, a nerve block may help you avoid invasive procedures like surgery.
The Basics of a Nerve Block
A nerve block is an injection of steroids and anesthetics directly into the spot that’s causing you pain. Steroids reduce inflammation, while the anesthetic provide pain relief. The procedure only takes about 15 minutes and is performed right in your NYC doctor’s office.
You lie on an x-ray table so that your doctor can see x-ray images in real time. This arrangement helps guide the placement of the needle. He may inject some contrast dye to highlight the area even further. Once the injection is made, you have to wait about 15 more minutes to give it time to work and to ensure you don’t have any side effects.
If you have any questions or concerns, our team of top pain management specialists in New York can work directly with you to explain your benefits. Contact us: (212) 621-7746
