A sympathetic block is a pain management procedure that helps to control chronic pain. The sympathetic nervous system is a series of nerves that spreads through the body to help control several involuntary body functions like blood flow, digestion, and sweating. The procedure can also be used to diagnose pain brought on because of issues with the sympathetic nerve system. A few examples of these conditions include:
- Pain from spasms in the blood vessels
- Complex Regional Pain Syndrome
- Raynaud’s Syndrome
- Chronic Stomach Pain
- Excessive sweating
