Lumbar Sympathetic Block

Call us to see if a Lumbar Sympathetic Block will help relieve your pain.

Patients with the below listed diagnoses can benefit from this procedure:

  • Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD)
  • CRPS (Complex Regional Pain Syndrome)
  • Causalgia (burning pain with shiny skin results from trauma to the hand or foot)
  • Peripheral Vascular Insufficiency
  • Post amputation syndromes
  • Post herpetic nerve pain
  • Chronic ill-defined pelvic pain

Pain relief is often instantaneous. The procedure is performed in a series over a period of time to allow for prolonged pain relief. This profound pain relief allows the patient to drastically reduce or completely stop taking pain medications.
