There is a little known muscle known as the psoas. You pronounce it “SO-as.” It’s surprising how so few people have ever heard of this muscle due to the fact that it is so vital to all movements. Almost all activities and sports that you participate in require the recruitment of your psoas muscles.

Lumbar Sympathetic Block Injections
When it comes to lumbar sympathetic block injections, you can trust the experienced professionals from Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians. A lumbar sympathetic block is an advanced interventional procedure that can be used to treat pain and inflammation in the lower extremities and to improve mobility. The procedure involves injecting a local anesthetic into or around the sympathetic nerves located on either sides of the spine in the lower back. This injection serves to block the pain signals that are generated to the brain thereby treating the pain and other symptoms associated with pain conditions such as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) and Sympathetic Maintained Pain.
The Interventional Spine physicians from Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are highly experienced in performing lumbar sympathetic block procedures. Using this advanced interventional treatment, we are able to help patients who suffer from pain and reduced mobility in the lower extremities find relief from their symptoms so they can return to a healthy and active lifestyle.

To find out if you are a candidate for this procedure, please contact our Atlanta Lumbar Sympathetic Block Specialists at Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians today and schedule an appointment with one of our physicians. We look forward to helping you stay active and live your best life.
