What Can Nerve Block Injections and Steroid Injections Treat?
Nerve block injections are best used to treat pain that is localized to a specific nerve cluster. This means that pain can be blocked by injecting numbing medication into a single area. Nerve blocks work by blocking pain signals that travel along the nerve.
Nerve blocks can also be used as a diagnostic tool. They allow your doctor to determine the source of your pain and if surgical intervention is needed.

Is There a Recovery Period After Nerve Block or Steroid Injections?
Most patients will experience a numbing sensation within a few minutes of their injection. Depending on the type of injection used, patients may also feel tingling or warmth.
After treatment, patients can generally return to work and everyday activities, but they should rest the treated part of the body for a few days.
Numbness, especially in the skin, may last up to four weeks.
