What is Lumbar Sympathetic Block? http://www.riversidepainphysicians.com (904) 389-1010 This procedure is performed to relieve leg pain caused by complex regional pain syndromes, which may develop after an injury to a joint or limb. Usually a series of injections are needed to treat the problem.

IV Administered:

A local anesthetic numbs the skin and tissue down to the sympathetic nerves. Jacksonville Pain Doctor
