Stump Injection, also known as neuroma injection, is a medical procedure performed to alleviate pain and discomfort in a residual limb (stump) following amputation. When an individual undergoes limb amputation, nerves in the residual limb can become irritated or form neuromas, which are tangled nerve bundles that can cause pain, tingling, or sensitivity.
During a stump injection, a local anesthetic, such as lidocaine, or a combination of anesthetics and anti-inflammatory medications, is injected near the affected nerves or neuromas. This injection helps to numb the area, block pain signals, and reduce inflammation, providing temporary or long-lasting relief.
