Stellate Ganglion Block
Treat head, neck, arm, and chest pain with a stellate ganglion block.
We know upper body pain can limit your range of motion and make you uncomfortable. A stellate ganglion block can help you reduce your pain and improve mobility.
A stellate ganglion block is an injection of local anesthetic that blocks the nerves responsible for transmitting pain to the head, neck, upper arms, and upper chest.
What to Expect from a Stellate Ganglion Block
A stellate ganglion block is an outpatient procedure using local anesthetic, which your physician will inject with a needle in a minimally invasive procedure.
Patients can expect a reduction in pain and swelling in the parts of the body previously affected by these nerves. Relief usually lasts days or weeks, with longer pain reduction as injections are repeated.
