Paravertebral Block

A paravertebral block is a type of regional anesthetic that is used to provide analgesia and anesthesia to a specific area of the body. It is commonly used in the treatment of lower back pain, abdominal surgery, and rib fractures. The block is performed by inserting a needle into the paravertebral space, located along the spine adjacent to the spinal cord. The needle is guided to the correct spot to inject an anesthetic agent such as a local anesthetic or a steroid. This provides relief directly to the nerves and nerve branches that serve the area of discomfort. The paravertebral block is safe and effective, offering long-lasting pain relief in most cases with minimal adverse effects. It is an increasingly popular choice when it comes to regional anesthesia due to its successful and reliable performance.
