About Nerve Blocks
Simply put, a nerve block is a type of medication that stops nerve pain. It is traditionally used to treat or manage the pain that is associated with nerve damage, overactive nerves, or poor nerve function. There are several types of nerve blocks, but regardless of the formula, they are all designed to interrupt the sensory signals that are produced by localized nerves. Although a minimally invasive treatment, nerve blocks are not for everyone. In many cases, they are recommended for patients who have tried other therapies without success. At Tricity Pain Associates in New Braunfels and Seguin, TX, we understand that the pain you are experiencing is real. We know it can be frustrating to live in chronic pain, which is why we are committed to helping you discover a solution that will provide sufficient pain relief.

Nerve Block Treatment
Nerve blocks are injectable treatments that are administered on-site at our care facility. This is considered an outpatient procedure and generally takes about 10 – 15 minutes to complete. Although patients will be free to return home afterward, they should refrain from driving and strenuous exercise for at least 24 hours. Many patients often experience great results with nerve blocks, but it is a temporary solution. In order to maintain your results, follow-up treatments will be needed. Most patients visit our office once or twice a year for treatments.
