Selective Nerve Root Block


 

Primarily used to diagnose the specific source of nerve root pain and secondarily used for therapeutic relief of low back pain or leg pain. The injection is done both with a steroid and a numbing agent and fluoroscopy is used to ensure medication is delivered to the correct location.

  • If the pain goes away after the injection, it can be inferred that the pain generator is the specific nerve root that has just been injected.
  • Recovery time: Very little recovery time and patients may return to work the same day.
