Our team of experienced physicians can evaluate your specific condition, medical history, and symptoms to determine if an intercostal injection is an appropriate treatment option for you.
Intercostal injection, also known as an intercostal nerve block, is a medical procedure that aims to alleviate pain in the chest and rib area. The intercostal nerves run along the spaces between the ribs and are responsible for transmitting pain signals from the chest wall to the brain.
During an intercostal injection, a local anesthetic or medication is injected near the affected intercostal nerves to provide pain relief. The injection can help manage conditions such as intercostal neuralgia (chronic nerve pain between the ribs), rib fractures, or post-surgical pain.
If you are experiencing chest or rib pain, contact us today and our specialized team can provide you with personalized guidance, explain the intercostal injection procedure in detail, and discuss how they can assist you in managing your specific pain condition.
