For many people who suffer with severe pain, nerve blocks have become part of their treatment. These injections of local anesthetic and steroid directly to the area of the affected nerve can help with pain control and improve function and quality of life. Often, the goal is to help people avoid surgery and to take an active role in physical therapy.
For some people, a nerve block gives immediate relief. For others, it can be less predictable, needing a series of injections before it helps the pain. It is important to note that pain is a personal perception, so treatment varies by patient.
