A dorsal root ganglion block (also known as an epidural injection) is an injection around the dorsal root ganglion.
This procedure slows or blocks impulses and can help reduce pain, particularly where the source of the pain is thought to be arising from the nervous system, (particularly the nerves that carry sensation). Although these injections may help your pain initially the effect may wear off. Often this procedure is performed as a test to find out the exact area causing problems. If you get relief from your pain, it will help the doctor to decide which procedure to do next.
Treatment is done under local anaesthetic, meaning you’ll be awake but shouldn’t feel pain during the procedure.
