What is a Stellate Ganglion Block?

Stellate ganglion blocks are generally recommended for people who have:

  • Phantom & Stump Pain: A painful phenomenon experienced by amputees at the site of their missing limb from transmitted neurons of the dorsal horn.
  • Shingles: A painful, blistering skin rash caused by the varicella-zoster virus that appears in a band or strip on the face or body.
  • Trigeminal Neuralgia

A stellate ganglion block:

  • Is targeted for your stellate ganglion, a collection of nerves found near your sixth and seventh cervical vertebrae.
  • Is a nerve block injection of a local anesthetic that can treat pain disorders of the upper extremities that are caused by the sympathetic nervous system.
  • Can also manage pain in your head, neck, chest or arm caused by nerve injuries—and reduces swelling in those areas.

The Benefits of Stellate Ganglion Blocks for Pain

  • A stellate ganglion block is a fast, minimally invasive procedure that can effectively treat a wide array of conditions.
  • Stellate ganglion block injections are primarily used to combat conditions that involve upper extremity pain, circulatory problems, and sensory changes that are maintained by the sympathetic nervous system.
