Medial Branch Block

What is a medial branch block?

A medial branch block is a specific injection numbing with local anesthetic a branch of nerve that goes to a joint in the neck, mid back or low back and by numbing this branch of the nerve, significant pain relief is obtained. A further secondary injection can be done to provide long lasting numbing of that nerve ending to the joint; therefore, relieving the pain significantly.
