About Nerve Blocks

At Tricity Pain Associates, our pain management specialists strive to deliver personalized, convenient care for all patients in need and take a minimally invasive approach whenever possible. A nerve block is one such solution we offer to help manage severe or chronic nerve pain resulting from a physical injury, arthritis, or the aging process. In some cases, a nerve block may be given to increase patient comfort before or during physical therapy. To perform a nerve block, we inject a numbing agent and/or steroid medication into specific areas of the spine or joints to temporarily prevent the nerves from transmitting pain signals in the neck, back, and other areas throughout the body. This can help to block pain sensation and provide much-needed relief for those suffering from chronic discomfort. Reach out to our South Austin or Round Rock, TX location today to learn more about nerve blocks and to reserve your private consultation.

Nerve Block Treatment

Nerve blocks only take a few minutes to administer and are safely provided by our certified physicians at our Austin area practice locations. Once your procedure is complete, you are free to go about your normal daily activities and can generally expect to be able to walk with ease. However, we do recommend that you avoid driving or operating heavy machinery for the remainder of the day and request that you have a friend or family member accompany you to and from your appointment. Nerve blocks can be helpful in providing temporary relief from pain. Depending on your needs, you may require multiple sessions to maintain your pain relief results. Keeping a record of how long your pain relief lasts following a nerve block can assist our team in helping you schedule follow-up treatments as necessary.
