Intercostal Nerve Block
The intercostal nerve supplies sensation to the thorax and abdomen. Consequently, intercostal nerve blocks and the neuromodulatory techniques may be used to provide analgesia, not only in acute pain but also in chronic pain management.
At Pain Spa Dr Krishna is very experienced in interventional treatments. Dr Krishna always performs intercostal nerve block under ultrasound guidance for greater accuracy and improved safety. Ultrasound gives the added advantage of visualizing the surrounding structures, which can be contributory to pain.
