Frequently Asked Questions

Would you ever recommend a permanent nerve block for knee pain?

Permanent nerve blocks are not recommended for knee pain as they can cause long-term nerve damage. Instead, our doctors specialize in targeted nerve blocks and injections that provide temporary relief while addressing the root cause of your pain. This approach allows us to develop a personalized treatment plan that may include other forms of pain management alongside nerve blocks.

How long do the results of nerve blocks typically last?

The duration of nerve block results can vary depending on the type of block used and individual factors. Generally, nerve blocks can provide pain relief for several hours to a few days. It's best to consult with your healthcare provider for specific information tailored to your situation.

Does your Big Rapids pain doctor accept insurance?

Yes! Our pain management center accepts most major insurance plans. However, it's always best to check with your insurance provider beforehand to confirm coverage for specific services or treatments. Visit our Insurance page to learn more about your options.
