What Is a Nerve Block Injection?

Nerve block injections are a minimally invasive medical procedure that is used to temporarily stop pain. They block the transmission of pain signals sent from your nerves, stopping chronic pain and inflammation in other areas of your body.

This injection involves administering an anesthetic and anti-inflammatory medication to a specific nerve or group of nerves. Carried out in a swift 15-20 minute procedure, the effects of a nerve block can last a few days, several weeks, or up to a month. In this period, your damaged nerve will have time to heal from constant inflammation and irritation.

An nerve block injection is often used to treat acute or chronic pain in the buttocks, legs, arms, and back. It can also be a source of diagnostic information, where our doctors will pinpoint where your chronic pain is coming from.

Also, if you have a spinal surgery scheduled, you may be given a nerve block to help control pain following a procedure. Before having a nerve block, a consultation with one of our pain management specialists will be required first. In this consultation, they’ll sit with you to discuss your medical history and symptoms and then produce a personalized treatment plan that helps alleviate your pain.

All of our physicians are licensed board members and have numerous qualifications in pain management and anesthesiology. Alongside their accreditations, they’re highly reputed across Wisconsin for their clinical experience, advanced surgical techniques, and patient-centric approach.

If you are experiencing chronic or acute pain, don’t wait any longer – book an appointment to discuss the best treatment approach.

Benefits of Injection Therapy

Injection therapy has several benefits that make it an attractive option for those suffering from chronic pain. These benefits include:

  • Targeted pain relief: Injection therapy delivers medication directly to the source of the pain, providing targeted pain relief that can be more effective than oral medications.
  • Reduced need for surgery: Injection therapy can often provide pain relief without the need for surgery, which can be a major benefit for those who want to avoid the risks and recovery time associated with surgical procedures.
  • Improved quality of life: Chronic pain can be debilitating and affect every aspect of your life. Injection therapy can help alleviate pain and improve your quality of life, allowing you to enjoy your favorite activities again.

What Is an Intercostal Nerve Block?

An intercostal nerve block is an injection that temporarily relieves your upper abdomen and chest pain. This minimally invasive injection is given just below your rib. It's often used to treat pain associated with rib fractures, chest surgeries, and postherpetic neuralgia.

What Are the Side Effects of a Suprascapular Nerve Block?

The side effects tend to be temporary and minimal. If you're to experience any, there's a chance of experiencing nerve damage, bleeding, infection, or no relief felt from the injection.

Where Is the Iliohypogastric Nerve Pain?

Ilioinguinal nerve pain often occurs in your upper thigh and lower abdomen. It's mainly caused by an injury or entrapment of your nerves in the lower abdomen. An iliohypogastric nerve block is often given to relieve pain temporarily.
