A ganglion nerve block is an injection that numbs branches of nerves in your neck. This helps doctors find and treat a number of problems linked to the nerves. Ganglion nerves travel along both sides of your spine. They are associated with a wide range of bodily functions that you don’t consciously control. These include blushing, heart rate, sweating and the dilation of your pupils.
What are the side effects associated with a ganglion nerve block?
A ganglion nerve block typically has very few risks. However, as with any medical procedure, there are some risks and side effects you should know about and discuss with your SpineOne physician. You’ll want to pay particular attention and alert SpineOne if any of these symptoms continue after 24-48 hours:
An increase in pain where needle was injected
A warm and tingling arm on the side of the procedure
Am I a good candidate for this procedure?
An injection to major joint is a non-surgical treatment option for pain. If you are allergic to certain medications, are on blood-thinning medication(s) or have an active infection, please inform your SpineOne physician to determine if this course of treatment is right for you.
