Chronic lower back pain and lower body joint pain can diminish your quality of life. In an attempt to get longer lasting pain relief, many people turn to pain blockers as an alternative to surgery or daily prescriptions.
What are Pain Blockers?
Pain blockers, also called nerve blocks, are injections into or around a nerve (or nerve bundle in the spinal cord) that interrupt pain signals sent to the brain. Pain blockers may be used to diagnose the source of pain as well as for treatment of chronic pain. Doctors may first perform a test block using a local anesthetic before injecting another chemical, usually alcohol, cortisone or phenol, for longer lasting results.
Pain blockers may effectively provide pain relief for six to twelve months.
Why Look for Alternative Treatments?
Although pain blockers may offer longer lasting pain relief compared to some other treatment options, they come with significant risks, including:
- Arterial damage
- Kidney damage
There is also the risk of accidental injections into arteries and lung punctures.
To avoid the risks, safer alternative pain relief treatments should be considered before resorting to pain blockers.
