A Stellate Ganglion Block is an outpatient procedure designed to address dysfunctional programming of the sympathetic portion of the autonomic nervous system (ANS). Typically, this programming results from exposure to extreme stress or trauma, often resulting in debilitating cognitive and psychological symptoms.
The sympathetic part of ANS controls the body’s “fight or flight” response, preparing the body for emergency situations. The sympathetic nervous system (SNS), also controls several other bodily systems including blood pressure, heartbeat, skin temperature, and the eyes’ response to light. Other functions controlled by the SNS include stress response, ability to focus, sexual function, and ability to relax.
When the SNS experiences overwhelm resulting from extreme stress or exposure to trauma, it becomes re-programmed to an unnaturally high set point. When this occurs, the body remains in a state of hyper-arousal, leading to inappropriate responses to stress. Individuals coping with dysfunctional autonomic programming may exhibit over-reactivity to stress, or conversely, emotional numbness. Because these symtoms stem from what is known as an “emotional injury,” they can often be corrected. The stellate ganglion block has shown consistently positive results in the treatment of the following conditions, among others:
What To Expect From an SGB Procedure
For the procedure, the patient will remain awake while the physician administers Ropivacaine around the stellate ganglion. The injection is performed on either the left or right side of the neck, at the C6-C7 vertebrae where the stellate ganglion lies. After the procedure, the patient will be monitored for approximately one hour to ensure no adverse reaction is experienced.
Post-procedure, patients may experience one to eight hours of red-eye or a feeling of heaviness in the eyelid. Changes in overall sensation after the procedure are a positive indication that the procedure has been effective. SGB recipients report feeling changes in perception, often described as a feeling of being their “old self” again. Many patients also experience improved sleep; improved ability to think and respond clearly and appropriately; and ability to enjoy everyday activities again. Results from an SGB procedure may be experienced in as little as 30 minutes following the procedure and depending on the patient, can last for years.
