Peripheral Nerve Blocks

The Peripheral Nerve blocks are used in Pain Management for both diagnosis of pain conditions as well as for therapeutic relief. These nerve blocks may be given either based on landmarks, Ultrasound or fluoroscopic guided. Usually a local anaesthetic and a depot steroid are used for these nerve blocks. Some of these nerve blocks used commonly include:

  • Greater and lesser occipital Nerve block – This is used in cases of Cervicogenic headache to rule out Occipital Neuralgia
  • Maxillary and Mandibular Nerve block – This is given in cases of Trigeminal Neuralgia with pain localized to areas innervated by either maxillary or Mandibular nerve in cases where Trigeminal ganglion RF is not feasible.
  • Suprascapular Nerve block – This is given in cases of Shoulder pain due to osteoarthritis, frozen shoulder to reduce the pain coming from shoulder joint.
  • Intercoastal Nerve block – This is used in cases of pain in thoracic region to manage Intercoastal Neuralgia.
  • Illioinguinal and Illiohypogastric Nerve block – This is given in cases of pain in Inguinal region to manage pain mediated by these nerves.
  • Obturator nerve block – This is given in cases of Hip pain due to hip osteoarthritis or avascular necrosis, not undergoing surgery.
  • Lateral femoral cutaneous nerve
