Nerve blocks, one of the most commonly used methods of pain treatment, are also the most effective methods at the same time.

The breakdown of the painful spasmatic vicious cycle of the majority of spinal and joint diseases has a critical prescription. For example; pain in a patient with frozen shoulder pain is sometimes so severe that even when you touch the patient's arm, it feels severe pain. He will not let you move and move your arm. Therefore, in such patients, trying to open the arm with physical therapy further increases the contraction, the contraction increases the pain, and so the vicious cycle continues. However, if first the patient 's pain is cut off and the physical treatment is started, this pain - spasm will be removed from the vicious cycle and the patient will respond to physical therapy and stretching exercises.

Many of our patients with nerve blocks have a right to ask. Will not the pain come back after the drug's effect? No. The duration of pain control that occurs after local anesthetic drugs are applied to the nerve may continue for a very long time even after the effect of the medicine has passed, and may even provide permanent treatment.

It is usually necessary to perform nerve blocks under imaging. Especially when performed under ultrasound imaging, the risk decreases and the chance of success of treatment increases. In some cases, nerve blockage treatments can also be performed in conjunction with an x-ray machine called scopi.

Are there risks in the nerve blocks? The risk of nerve blockage is very low. Side effects such as diarrhea-related allergies, blood pressure reduction, heart rate drop, transfer, infection and temporary increase in pain are very rare.
