Selective Nerve Root Block

Nerve Block Injections

Pain-Reducing Selective Nerve Block Injections

Another pain management option offered at Center for Advanced Pain Management and Rehabilitation, LLC is selective nerve root block (SNRB). As with facet injections, these injections can be used to either diagnose a condition or provide relief for back pain, leg pain, and other pain caused by irritated spinal nerves.

How Selective Nerve Root Block Works

The difference between SNRB and a typical epidural injection is that epidurals target a relatively large area around your spinal cord, while SNRB can give more detailed information when diagnosing sources of back pain. SNRB can also reduce the area of your body affected by medication.

As with our other injections, the physician will place the needle with X-ray guidance to target compressed or irritated nerves in the following areas: neck (cervical spine), upper back (thoracic spine), or lower back (lumbar spine). An anesthetic, anti-inflammatory corticosteroid or a mixture of these medications will be injected into the space surrounding the injection site.

"A great facility. You get personal attention. People that work with you are very nice
and inspirational to the point where you don't feel you are doing exercise but you feel more comfortable. They make it easier for you to do your therapy and it makes you want to come back and do your therapy. I recommend all doctors and orthopedic surgeons send their patients here for therapy - they give you personal attention here."
