Intercostal Nerve Blocks

 

An Intercostal nerve block is an injection of medication into the chest area to relieve pain caused by a herpes zoster infection (“shingles”) or a surgical incision. A steroid medication and local anesthetic are injected into the Intercostal nerves, located under each rib, and can help reduce inflammation and alleviate pain.
