Peripheral Nerve Injections

What is a Peripheral Nerve Injection?

Peripheral nerve blocks are utilized to manage nerve pain, also known as neuralgia. Nerve injury can be caused by trauma, compression, ischemia (damage from inadequate blood supply), or toxic exposure to a nerve.

What does the procedure look like?

The procedure involves injection of a local anesthetic-steroid mixture in proximity to the injured nerve, decreasing the transmission of pain signals to and along the nerve. In some cases involving sensory nerves, temperature-based therapy such as cryotherapy or radiofrequency lesioning may be used as a long term pain solution. Terminal cases can call for substances such as phenol and alcohol to be utilized, providing long term relief. While any complication from this procedure is rare, there may be a risk of infection, bruising, or damage to the nerve. After the injection, any soreness can be managed by applying ice for 20 minutes two to three times a day.

We want to assure our patients that Portland Pain and Spine remains open and actively managing your pain. Medication management is given the highest priority. Our relocation across the hall in the Washington building is complete but requires office renovation before we can accommodate patient visits. Staffing shortages affected our ability to communicate last month, however, this was temporary. Dr. Balog has reached out to all patients but asks that if anyone has additional questions or concerns to contact him at
We have updated our phone messaging system to assist with calls. There are now options to speak with a live receptionist, leave messages or speak with our new billing company. Medical record requests can be processed on our website at and are handled by Morgan Records Management. Thank you for your patience during this transition. We look forward to providing you high-quality care as we enter into 2024! 

Wishing you all a joyful holiday season.
