Conditions Alleviated by Nerve Block Therapy

Nerve blocks are highly effective for numerous conditions, each of which may result in persistent or debilitating pain. 

Some conditions commonly treated with nerve block therapy include:

  • Chronic back and neck pain: Nerve blocks can help manage the chronic pain associated with conditions like herniated discs and spinal stenosis.
  • Sciatica: Characterized by pain radiating down the leg from the lower back, a nerve block can provide much-needed relief from sciatica.
  • Migraines and headaches: Severe, persistent headaches may be alleviated with targeted nerve block treatments.
  • Arthritis: Pain from various forms of arthritis, including rheumatoid and osteoarthritis, can be mitigated with nerve block therapy.
  • Cancer pain: Nerve blocks can help manage pain related to cancer and its treatment, improving a patient’s quality of life.
  • Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS): This chronic pain condition generally affects one limb and can benefit from nerve block treatment.

Our team at Pinnacle Pain Management is highly experienced in applying nerve blocks for these conditions and more. 

Identifying Ideal Candidates for Nerve Block Procedures

A nerve block procedure may be considered for individuals experiencing chronic pain or certain medical conditions. Good candidates typically include:

  • Chronic Pain Sufferers: Individuals with persistent pain, especially neuropathic or localized pain, that hasn't responded well to other treatments may benefit from nerve blocks.
  • Diagnostic Purposes: Nerve blocks can be used diagnostically to identify the source of pain and help determine the most effective treatment plan.
  • Specific Conditions: Patients with conditions such as sciatica, migraines, chronic regional pain syndrome (CRPS), or certain joint pain may find relief through targeted nerve block procedures.
  • Postoperative Pain: Nerve blocks can be used to manage pain after surgery or as part of a comprehensive pain management plan.
  • Minimally Invasive Options: Individuals seeking minimally invasive pain management solutions may be good candidates for nerve block procedures.

It's essential for patients to undergo a thorough evaluation by our pain management specialists to determine the appropriateness of a nerve block procedure based on their specific medical history and condition.

What Are the Pros & Cons of Nerve Blocks?


  • Targeted relief: Nerve blocks can relieve localized pain by targeting specific nerves associated with pain areas. This makes them particularly useful for conditions like sciatica or migraines.
  • Diagnostic use: Nerve blocks can be beneficial as diagnostic tools. If a nerve block successfully relieves pain, it can help identify the nerve causing the discomfort.
  • Therapeutic benefits: Nerve blocks also have therapeutic benefits. For some patients, a series of nerve blocks can lead to long-term pain relief.


  • Temporary: While nerve blocks can effectively manage pain, they are generally a temporary solution. The effects of a nerve block may last for up to two weeks. 
  • Risk of complications: As with any medical procedure, risks are involved. These may include infection, allergic reactions to the medication, or bleeding.
  • Varied effectiveness: The effectiveness of nerve blocks can vary from person to person. Some individuals may experience significant relief, while others may not notice a substantial difference in pain levels. 

We believe that each patient deserves a personalized approach to pain management. Our team strives to match each individual with the most appropriate treatment for their unique situation, considering each option’s potential benefits and risks.
