Sympathetic Nerve Blocks

It is common to develop significant pain on an arm or leg after trauma or surgery of a joint. The nerves into these limbs become very inflamed causing burning, tingling with a cold sensation, stiffness and weakness. The pain physician can place pain medication and steroids along these nerves (in the neck or back) to reduce pain and swelling. Oftentimes there is immediate return of warmth and movement to those involved limbs.
