A stellate ganglion block is used to treat pain of the upper extremities, head or neck. Local anesthetic is injected in the front of the neck, near the Adam’s Apple, using ultrasonic guidance by a physician. Immediate numbing relief will be felt following the procedure. A stellate ganglion block is often a combined treatment with physical therapy to help maximize relief of pain in the effected area. Conscious sedation may be provided upon prior approved request.
