Nerve blocks, or “naturalized blockades”, are procedures that can help prevent or manage many different types of pain. They are often injections of medicines that block pain from specific nerves. They can be used for pain relief as well as total loss of feeling if needed for surgery.

Nerve block or “regional nerve blockade” is any intentional interruption of signals traveling along a nerve, often to help people feel no pain during and after a surgery. And, sometimes, you will feel numb for a day or two.
