Nerve Block Injections Bergen County

Nerve Block Injections act to stop pain signals from reaching the brain from a given location in the body. To provide pain relief, medicine suited for each individual is injected into the location of the afflicted nerve. A nerve block is used to alleviate discomfort, increase mobility, and allow you the ability to do physical therapy. They can be utilized as a diagnostic tool, as a way of treating pain therapeutically, and in a preemptive manner to avoid pain throughout the treatment.

Nerve Block Injection Q & A

Nerve Blocks are used to treat chronic pain as well as acute, short-term pain. They may provide long-term relief since certain injections minimize nerve irritation and allow them to recover. Short-term nerve blocks can offer a temporary solution. However, the medications can wear off in a few hours and the pain may come back. To reduce inflammation and discomfort, some patients may require multiple nerve block treatments.
Nerve Blocks are commonly used in surgery to help alleviate pain. They can also help to treat pain derived from chronic health conditions or damaged nerves as a result of injury. Whether you’re experiencing debilitating pain in the spine, arms, legs, neck, or buttocks, nerve blocks can help to relieve you of your suffering.
The injection containing medicine will be administered with precision, as close to the afflicted nerve as possible. We will use imaging tools to assist us in placing the needle in the most optimal position. Once the needle is injected, the medication will be delivered to the affected region. This will numb the area and reduce inflammation, and if need-be, we can deliberately damage the nerve. Doing so will stop the pain signals being sent from the nerve. The procedure itself is done quickly, and we may ask you to stay for an extra half hour to monitor any adverse side effects. You will typically notice the effects of the nerve block instantly as the medicine provides relief in a short period of time. However, nerve blocks normally last a just few weeks before being absorbed by the body. Some individuals may require multiple treatments before experiencing long-term relief.
