Nerve Block Injections are advanced nonsurgical diagnostic and pain relief treatments performed by the region’s leading pain management experts at Nassau Anesthesia Associates, P.C., a medical group affiliated with Winthrop-University Hospital on Long Island, NY.
In addition to providing anesthesia care for patients before, during, and after surgery, Nassau Anesthesia Associates has anesthesiologists with advanced training in the field of pain management. We utilize the most advanced nonsurgical techniques for treating acute and chronic pain that hasn’t responded to more conservative treatments.
When a specific nerve or nerve group causes painful conditions, the nerves can be blocked with an injection of a local anesthetic or steroids. Nerve block is a general term that encompasses several types of injections for peripheral nerves, sympathetic nerves, and spinal nerves. A nerve block injection can relieve many symptoms like pain, swelling, sweating, and inflammation, while alleviating enough stress for the nerve to be able to heal itself. Some patients have experienced relief lasting several months to several years.
