• Selective Nerve Root Blocks (SNRB)

    Selective Nerve Root Blocks are used primarily as a diagnostic tool for pain. Back pain can occur when nerve roots become compressed and inflamed. While MRIs can be used to show which nerves are causing the pain, they don’t always work successfully. Electro diagnostic studies, EDS, also may not always locate the pain generator. In cases when this happens, an SNRB injection can be performed in order to isolate the source of the pain. Dr. Ring has and can easily perform these injections. Oftentimes surgeons will want these injections prior to surgery to outline exactly what level or levels are causing your pain.
