What is Targetted Nerve Blocks ?

Targeted nerve blocks, also known as nerve block injections or simply nerve blocks, are medical procedures used to manage and alleviate pain by delivering medication directly to specific nerves or nerve clusters that are responsible for transmitting pain signals. The primary purpose of a nerve block is to interrupt or block the pain signals traveling along the affected nerves, providing temporary or, in some cases, longer-term pain relief. Before performing a nerve block, a healthcare provider evaluates the patient’s condition to identify the source of the pain and determine the most appropriate treatment. This evaluation often includes a physical examination and may involve imaging studies (such as MRI or ultrasound) to pinpoint the precise location of the problematic nerves.


  • Pain from labor
  • Pain because of surgery like joint replacement
  • Cancer-related pain
  • Migraine
  • Back pain or sciatica
  • Arthritis pain
  • Excessive sweating
  • Pain due to spasms in blood vessel
  • Neck pain due to herniated disks


Injections are generally avoided in patients who have a systemic illness or skin infection over the puncture site, bleeding problems or coagulopathy, or an allergy to local anaesthetics or any of the drugs that will be administered.


  • Infection at the injection site.
  • Bleeding at the injection site.
  • Accidental delivery of the medication into your bloodstream.
  • Unexpected spread of the medication to other nerves or your spinal canal (depending on the type of block).

Post Procedure

The chronic nerve pain specialist in Dr.Murali’s Pain Centre recommends patient take rest for 15 to 30 minutes till the injection starts its effect. This will provide relief for almost 3 to 6 weeks as after that they are absorbed by the body. In some cases, the relief can even be permanent.
