Back doesn't have to stop you from enjoying life.
Houston, TX (PRWEB) October 23, 2016
Advocate Pain Management Center, one of the most comprehensive pain management clinics in the great Houston area, is now offering lumbar sympathetic blocks. A lumbar sympathetic block is an injection or series of injections of local anesthetic that numbs the nerves in one side of the lower back or the other. These nerves are part of the sympathetic nervous system, which carry nerve signals from the lower extremities.
A lumbar sympathetic block can help doctors identify and treat the source of pain in the lower extremities. By blocking the pain relay in the nerves of the lower back, a doctor can determine if the source of the pain is tied to the sympathetic nervous system or something else, and plan treatment accordingly.
The interventional pain management doctors at APMC make every effort to alleviate pain the in the best way possible for each patient. The center uses the most sophisticated diagnostic and treatment methods available. Living with any type of chronic pain, can change all aspects of daily living. The Board Certified doctors at the center are skilled at diagnosing and then treating the source of pain to ensure that each patient reaches his or her highest level of function.
