TAMPA, FL, November 04, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Pain and Wellness Institute is helping patients affected by post-traumatic stress disorder through Stellate Ganglion Block Injections. Patients have been known to find relief from PTSD symptoms through this treatment option.
The Stellate Ganglion is an accumulation of nerves in the sympathetic nervous system of the neck. This manages and controls the awakening of fear in the brain. Stellate Ganglion Block Injections achieve the beneficial goal of helping to decrease post-traumatic stress disorder symptoms by resetting the symptomatic nervous system. Thus, lowering the amounts of norepinephrine produced.
Norepinephrine is involved with increasing the heart rate, blood pressure, and blood that is pumped to the heart. This can cause headaches, racing heart, anxiety, and sweating. This causes the nerves located in the sympathetic nervous system to activate and awaken the fear center in the brain. Therefore, increasing the symptoms of post-traumatic stress.
Before any injections take place, the patient receiving treatment first undergoes an x-ray or ultrasound of the neck area called the Stellate Ganglion in order to locate the nerves. This allows successful guiding of the needle. The injection needle will administer anesthesia to the nerves in the neck, which can generally last a considerable number of weeks.
Patients have found that SGB injections have helped and improved PTSD symptoms that can include:
