Kayal Pain & Spine Center Provides Expert Care

Franklin Lakes, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/04/2019 -- Patients who don't know much about a nerve block might feel overwhelmed when their doctor recommends one, but a nerve block can be the solution to back, neck, shoulder and other orthopaedic-related pain.

Nerve blocks are one of the options offered at Kayal Pain & Spine Center, the highly respected spine surgery center based in Bergen County. This elite team of pain and spine specialists offers treatments and therapies at several convenient offices, including Franklin Lakes, Westwood and Glen Rock in New Jersey and Stony Point in New York. Another office is opening soon in Paramus, NJ.

A nerve block is a temporary or permanent procedure that interrupts specific nerve activity. It can be used to treat pain caused by damage or dysfunction and some types of neuropathic pain. A nerve block can be very effective in treating back and neck pain from herniated discs or spinal stenosis.

Delivered by injection or by purposely damaging or cutting specific areas of the nerve, a nerve block also is used as an effective tool to diagnose orthopaedic-related problems and it can be used as an alternative to IV pain medication to reduce pre-surgery and post-surgery pain. Surgical patients who use nerve blocks often experience less pain and fewer side effects, such as nausea, sleepiness, itching and slow breathing.

Common nerve blocks include:

1. Local, in which local anesthetics are injected or applied to a specific area
2. Neurolytic, in which damage is caused to a targeted area to disrupt a nerve pathway
3. Surgical, which removes or intentionally damages certain areas of the nerve to control pain

At Kayal Pain & Spine Center, patients receive expert treatment from an award-winning team of pain management specialists. To schedule an appointment with one of Kayal Pain & Spine Center's top-notch hand, neck, shoulder or back pain doctors in Glen Rock, call 844.281.1783 or contact us on the web.
