Intercostal Nerve Block

The intercostal nerves run along the ribs. This procedure can treat chest pain that is caused by a number of factors, such as trauma, pathology, or inflammation of the rib. Using X-ray-guided fluoroscopy or ultrasound guidance, Dr. DeCaria determines the precise location of the nerves and injects the medication. Pain relief can be immediate to within several days and there is no recovery time.

Dr. DeCaria is a double-board certified physician in anesthesiology and pain management medicine with extensive training and experience in treating chronic pain with trigger point injections.

Schedule your appointment with Dr. DeCaria of Revitalize Medical Center in Glenview and Evanton, IL, to take the first step towards a long-term solution for your chronic pain!
