Stellate Lumbar Sympathetic Block
Lumbar Sympathetic Blocks are performed in order to target the Sympathetic nerves in the lower back that are causing pain that shoots down the leg and into the foot. Stellate Ganglion blocks help relieve pain from the Sympathetic nerves in the neck that shoots into the shoulder, arm, and face.
Using a needle and guidance via fluoroscope, a needle is injected into the problem area. These procedures can take anywhere from 1 minute to 45 minutes depending on the complexity of the position and desired results.
