Nuro did the standard motion testing and during the lets see if you can raise your arms up part my neck had a hissy fit, He checked out neck & back and referred me for a cervical block. I asked him couldn't i get it through my ortho he said no way , if it is nerve related we can see what is going on better?

Re: appiontment today

Zoey, I have had two lumbar nerve blocks. The first one helped for about 3 months and the last one did not help more than 24 hours.

Alot of times these blocks are used for diagnostic purposes. It helps the doctors determine which level is the pain generator. My doctor used this in place of the discogram and it is by far less painful. The key is when you have the procedure you must have your normal pain or you would not obtain valid results.

Good luck.
