How it works?
Nerves in our spine and body can be irritated and pinched due to many reasons such as degenerative changes in our spine, faulty movements and spasm in our muscles located closer to the nerve or through which the nerve pass. A few well-known conditions that can be caused by nerve irritations are sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome, and headache or migraines.
Nerve blocks are the most effective, quick, and less invasive way to treat such conditions caused due to nerve irritations in your body and spine regions. Pain relief obtained from nerve blocks can be experienced immediately and can be a long-term to permanent effect depending on your condition.

Some of common conditions we treat
If you are suffering from conditions such as sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome, chronic neck or back pain, headache, or migraines then nerve block can help you to return back to your normal life. Commonly used drugs for nerve blocks are a range of local anesthetics, corticosteroids, and saline. Ultrasound-guided nerve blocks are the safest procedures as we will be able to visualize all soft tissue layers and blood vessels through ultrasound imaging, which helps us to guide the needle precisely to the right target.
