Brachial Plexus Block Treatment

A brachial plexus block is an injection procedure that is used to simultaneously diagnose and alleviate the symptoms of upper extremity chronic pain conditions such as complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) and peripheral neuropathies. The procedure is done using x-ray guidance to insert a needle into the affected area and delivering a local anesthetic. Brachial plexus blocks may be administered as a single injection, or in some cases, may be left in with a dressing for daily injections.
