Relief From Chronic Abdominal Pain
A celiac plexus block is an advanced interventional treatment that can be used to help patients get relief from chronic abdominal pain. The procedure involves injecting a local anesthetic and sometimes a steroid medication into or around the celiac plexus of nerves that surround the aorta. It works by blocking the pain signals to the brain. In addition to treating abdominal pain, a celiac plexus block can also serve as an important diagnostic tool to help pinpoint the source of abdomen pain.
The physicians from Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are highly trained and experienced to administer celiac plexus block injections. Using this advanced and minimally invasive treatment, we are able to help patients who suffer from chronic abdominal pain find long-term pain relief and achieve improved function so they can return to a healthy and active lifestyle.
