Nerve Block

A nerve block is the injection of a local anesthetic (numbing) drug around a nerve, temporarily inactivating it. This procedure is usually used for the treatment of pain, chronic pain, dental work, or suturing lacerations. In headache treatment, occipital nerve blocks, facet blocks, or medical branch blocks are sometimes performed.

“I just wanted to take a minute or two to let you know how very informative my husband and I found the presentation which was held in St. Louis a couple of weekends ago. We walked away with a lot of information and didn't feel so all alone and confused.”
