Stellate Ganglion Nerve Block for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

This procedure involves injecting a long-acting local anesthetic into the stellate ganglion. This group of nerve cells and nerves in the neck helps regulate the body’s “fight or flight” mechanism, which can result in long-term relief of the associated anxiety symptoms.
