About Nerve Blocks
A nerve block is a type of drug that is injected into specific areas of the body that are experiencing pain. There are a variety of different types of nerve blocks, but each one is formulated with a type of numbing agent that prevents the nerves from producing pain signals. This process, in turn, alleviates a patient's discomfort, enabling them to perform routine activities with less pain. A nerve block can help men and women who are suffering from an injury, arthritis, or other medical condition that is causing nerve pain. However, a nerve block is not for everyone. Typically, it's reserved for those who have tried other medications and therapies without noticeable improvement. Call Tricity Pain Associates in Carrollton, Prosper, McKinney, or Irving, TX to sit down with one of our caring professionals to see if a nerve block is right for you.

Nerve Block Treatment
There are several different kinds of nerve blocks that are made of varying formulas, such as a joint block, TAP block, and stellate ganglion block. The one selected for your needs will rely on the location of your pain and other factors. All nerve blocks are performed on-site at our Dallas care facility and generally take about 10 – 15 minutes to complete. Afterward, you will be free to return home but should refrain from driving and strenuous activity for the first 24 hours. A nerve block offers significant improvement, but this relief is temporary, which is why multiple treatments are generally needed to maintain your results. After your initial treatment, we can discuss when you should return for your follow-up session.
