What is a Nerve Block?
Nerve blocks are used for pain treatment and management. Often a group of nerves, called a plexus or ganglion, that causes pain to a specific organ or body region can be blocked with the injection of medication into a specific area of the body. The injection of this nerve-numbing substance is called a nerve block.
What are the benefits?
The injection of local anaesthetic and steroid may provide temporary relief from pain but you should follow a regular gentle course of daily exercises, otherwise the pain may return.
