Stellate Ganglion Block

 

A stellate ganglion block can help diagnose and treat conditions such as herpes zoster, persistent angina, and vascular disorders of the upper extremities as well as help increase circulation and blood supply to the arm.  The stellate ganglion, a collection of nerves present on either side of the neck, is part of the sympathetic nervous system that is responsible for supplying the upper limbs, head, neck and upper chest. These nerves are not involved with feeling or movement but damage to the nerves by trauma, infection or disease conditions can lead to chronic pain.
