Nerve Blocks


Welcome to Hassan Spine and Sports Medicine, where we are dedicated to providing advanced pain management solutions tailored to your unique needs. If you’re seeking effective relief from chronic pain, Nerve Blocks may be the answer you’ve been looking for.

What are Nerve Blocks?

Nerve Blocks are a specialized medical procedure used to diagnose and treat pain originating from specific nerves in the body. These nerves play a crucial role in transmitting pain signals, and when they become dysfunctional due to conditions such as neuropathy, complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), or other nerve-related disorders, they can result in persistent and often debilitating discomfort.


Why Choose Nerve Blocks at Hassan Spine and Sports Medicine?

  • Expertise: At Hassan Spine and Sports Medicine, our team of experienced pain management specialists, led by Dr. [Doctor’s Name], is highly skilled in performing Nerve Blocks. We bring years of expertise and a commitment to delivering the highest quality of care to each patient.
  • Precise Diagnosis: Before recommending Nerve Blocks, we conduct a comprehensive evaluation of your medical history and perform diagnostic tests to pinpoint the exact source of your pain. This personalized approach ensures that we target the problem accurately.
  • Effective Pain Relief: Nerve Blocks have a proven track record of providing relief for a wide range of conditions, including neuropathic pain, CRPS, and other nerve-related disorders. By injecting a local anesthetic or other medications directly into the affected nerve or nerves, we can block pain signals and provide relief.
  • Minimally Invasive: Our Nerve Blocks are minimally invasive, involving only a small needle and a minor incision. This results in minimal discomfort, shorter recovery times, and a reduced risk of complications compared to more invasive surgical options.
  • Holistic Approach: We believe in a comprehensive approach to pain management. Nerve Blocks can be part of a larger treatment plan that may include physical therapy, rehabilitation exercises, or other non-surgical interventions to address the underlying cause of your pain.

Types of Nerve Blocks Offered at Hassan Spine and Sports Medicine

  • Peripheral Nerve Blocks: Targeting nerves outside the spinal cord, these blocks can provide relief for conditions such as peripheral neuropathy or nerve entrapment syndromes.
  • Sympathetic Nerve Blocks: Used to treat conditions like complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) or sympathetically maintained pain by targeting the sympathetic nervous system.
  • Epidural Nerve Blocks: Administered into the epidural space of the spine, these blocks can alleviate pain related to herniated discs, spinal stenosis, or radiculopathy.

What to Expect During a Nerve Block Procedure

  • Preparation: You’ll receive instructions on how to prepare for the procedure, which may include fasting for a few hours beforehand.
  • Procedure: The Nerve Block is administered with precision, often guided by imaging technology to ensure accurate placement. Most patients experience minimal discomfort during the procedure.
  • Recovery: After the injection, you may experience some mild soreness or minor side effects, which typically subside within a few days. You can usually resume your daily activities shortly after the procedure.
  • Follow-up: Our team will provide post-procedure care instructions and schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your progress.

Is a Nerve Block Right for You?

If you’re enduring persistent pain related to nerve dysfunction, a Nerve Block may offer significant relief. However, the appropriateness of this treatment will depend on your specific diagnosis and medical history. During your consultation at Hassan Spine and Sports Medicine, our experts will thoroughly discuss whether Nerve Blocks are the right choice for you or if alternative treatments may be more appropriate.
