What is a diagnostic nerve block?
Are you interested in learning more about a diagnostic or therapeutic nerve block? Our team at Preston Surgery Center in Frisco, TX would be happy to discuss what this would mean for your care. In general, a diagnostic nerve block is a way for our board-certified and fellowship-trained pain management physicians, Dr. Mohammad Tariq, Dr. David Keelen, or Dr. Gabor Racz, to find the source of your pain. They can do this by injecting a small amount of anesthetic into the nerves near your pain point and see if the pain goes away. We can even use fluoroscopy or a CT scan to guide our physicians when inserting the needle into a painful nerve. Our pain management specialists are highly trained to perform nerve blocks and can do so in our AAAASF-accredited surgery center on-site in Frisco, TX. Drs. Tariq, Keelen, and Racz offer this treatment with other options for a comprehensive approach to manage your pain, such as:
- Medication management
- Physical therapy
- Behavioral counseling
- Chiropractic and acupuncture services
- Minimally invasive pain procedures
If the injection does not work, then the pain is probably coming from somewhere else or multiple sources. Not to worry, our pain specialists will provide you with the most effective yet least invasive treatments for your pain (like with diagnostic nerve blocks). We can provide you with exceptional care at Preston Surgery Center.
