Plexus Nerve Blocks are an injection of anesthetic that numbs a specific network of nerves responsible for acute pain to a specific organ or body region (for example, brachial or celiac plexus nerves). Plexus nerve blocks are used to provide the following treatment options to our patients:
Control acute pain
Diagnose pain sources
Predict the outcomes of treatments such as surgery
What are the side effects associated with a plexus nerve block?
A plexus 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
Am I a good candidate for this procedure?
An injection to a plexus nerve group 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.
