Stellate Ganglion Block

Updated on Jul 9, 2021 by Dr. Amr Hosny (Headache Specialist) of Advanced Headache Center

What are Stellate Ganglion Blocks?

Stellate ganglion block is a treatment used to relieve headaches. A stellate ganglion nerve block is an injection that numbs branches of nerves in your neck. This helps doctors find and treat several problems linked to the nerves. The stellate ganglion nerves travel along both sides of your spine. They are associated with a wide range of bodily functions that you don’t consciously control.

Damage or irritation of these nerves can cause headaches, face and neck pain. In preparation for the procedure, you lie on your back. You are given medicine to make you feel relaxed. Blocks such as these are guided by fluoroscopy and ultrasound to ensure the proper placement of the needle. The skin and tissue of your neck are numbed. Treatment may require a series of injections.
