At the core of interventional pain management are various injections and blocks that prevent pain messages from being sent to the brain. These treatments may provide short-term relief to patients who struggle with the effects of chronic pain. National Pain Institute offers injections and blocks for residents of Orlando, as well as other communities in Central and South Florida.
What Are Injections & Blocks?
Injections and blocks include the administration of medications that numb the nerves, reduce inflammation and rely on other mechanisms to disrupt and stop pain signals. The procedures will not cure the underlying medical condition, but aim to give patients relief from chronic pain for several months. You may depend less on your prescription pain medications after having an injection or block.

What Are the Benefits of Injections & Blocks?
If you are not satisfied with the outcomes of more conservative pain management methods, such as medications, our injections and blocks may be more viable options to control your chronic pain. The treatments are performed on an outpatient basis and do not require general anesthesia.
Am I a Candidate for Injections & Blocks?
If you suffer from pain that has lasted for three months or longer and use prescription pain medications regularly to manage the discomfort, you may be a good candidate for our injections and blocks. We recommend that you ask your physician for a referral to our practice and contact us to schedule a consultation. We will review your medical records and perform a thorough physical examination to determine how we can help you.
