Rectus Sheath Block
The rectus sheath block was first introduced into clinical practice in 1899 by Schleich when it was used to achieve perioperative muscle relaxation and as an analgesic adjunct. More recently it has been used increasingly for chronic abdominal wall pain.
At Pain Spa Dr Krishna is very experienced in interventional treatments. Dr Krishna always performs rectus sheath 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.
