The Sympathetic Block Process
The sympathetic block process at the Texas Institute of Pain and Spine begins with a thorough consultation to understand the patient’s specific pain condition. Once identified, the injection site is determined based on the location of the affected sympathetic nerves. The procedure involves the precise administration of a local anesthetic and, if needed, a corticosteroid to the targeted area. This targeted approach interrupts pain signals from the sympathetic nerves, relieving and potentially reducing inflammation. The entire process is conducted under the guidance of advanced imaging techniques, ensuring accuracy and effectiveness. Patients typically experience minimal discomfort, and the procedure is performed as an outpatient service, allowing for a prompt return to daily activities.
