Sympathetic Nerve Blocks
A sympathetic nerve block is an injection of local anesthetic used to diagnose damage in the sympathetic nerve network along the spine. These nerves are located on either side of the lumbar section of the spine, and control some of the involuntary functions of the body, such as sweating, blood flow, and digestion.
