Welcome to Hassan Spine and Sports Medicine, where we are committed to delivering exceptional pain management solutions tailored to your individual needs. If you are seeking relief from pain related to spinal conditions or nerve compression, Selected Nerve Root Injections may offer the targeted relief you need.

What are Selected Nerve Root Injections?

Selected Nerve Root Injections, also known as Selective Nerve Root Blocks or SNRB, are a specialized medical procedure designed to diagnose and alleviate pain arising from specific nerve roots in the spine. These nerve roots can become compressed or irritated due to conditions such as herniated discs, spinal stenosis, or radiculopathy, leading to persistent and often debilitating discomfort.
