Chronic pain can have a profound impact on your daily life, making it difficult to carry out even the most basic activities. At Las Vegas Spine and Pain, we offer a range of interventional pain management therapies, including Stellate Ganglion Block, to help our patients manage their pain and improve their quality of life.
In this service page, we'll explore what Stellate Ganglion Block is, the different types of Stellate Ganglion Block available, and why it may be the right choice for you.
A Stellate Ganglion Block is a type of procedure where a local anesthetic is injected into the stellate ganglion, a bundle of nerves located in the neck. The goal of the injection is to temporarily interrupt the pain signals that are being sent to the brain and to provide pain relief.
Stellate Ganglion Block is performed in our state-of-the-art facility and is typically done as an outpatient procedure, meaning that you can go home the same day. The procedure is relatively quick and generally well-tolerated, and many patients experience significant pain relief as a result.
There are several different types of Stellate Ganglion Block available, each designed to target specific aspects of chronic pain. Some of the most common types of Stellate Ganglion Block include:
Cervical Stellate Ganglion Block: This type of block targets the stellate ganglion located in the neck. It is often used to treat conditions such as chronic headache, facial pain, and neck pain.
Thoracic Stellate Ganglion Block: This type of block targets the stellate ganglion located in the chest. It is often used to treat conditions such as intercostal neuralgia and other forms of chest pain.
Stellate Ganglion Block may be a valuable option for individuals who are experiencing chronic pain in the neck, head, chest, or other areas and have not found relief through other forms of treatment.
