Balog Regenerative and Portland Pain and Spine have partnered with Stella, the leaders in trauma/PTSD treatment, to offer the Stellate Ganglion Block (SGB) treatment.
SGB is an injection of a local anesthetic into the stellate ganglion, a nerve bundle in the neck connected to the fight or flight system, to help people feel calm again in their own bodies.
SGB Treats the Physical Injury of Trauma. Exposure to high stress or traumatic events often results in debilitating symptoms that can originate from the sympathetic nervous system’s fight or flight response. When individuals suffer from trauma-related symptoms, the fight or flight response can stay in “high gear” long after the trauma.
The SGB procedure interacts with the sympathetic nervous system to help restore normal biological function and can efficiently address many of the most severe symptoms associated with trauma – usually within one or two clinical visits.
