Nerve Root Block
A nerve root block is an injection into the sheath surrounding a nerve root in the spine to decrease your pain temporarily and to identify where the pain is coming from precisely. The exam uses therapeutic steroid and local anesthetic (numbing medication) to decrease pain and inflammation. Pain relief from the procedure varies from minimal to long-term, depending on the specific symptoms.
