Mention "neck needle" recently I was in a good doctor online reply to a lot of headache sufferers question, what is the "neck needle"? Can you treat stubborn headache really? In fact, "hit the neck needle," the full name of the "stellate ganglion block" (Stellate Ganglion Block, SGB). The local anesthetic effect on stellate ganglion, the corresponding clinical curative effect. This brings out another concept, what is the "stellate ganglion"?
Stellate ganglion is composed of sixth, 7 cervical ganglion and first thoracic ganglia fused, located in front of the seventh cervical vertebra transverse process to the first rib neck, long neck muscle, with apical, carotid artery, subclavian artery, vertebral artery and its surrounding. You see a stellate ganglion anatomy could beat a retreat. Wow! Around so many important organs, if not carefully hit the wrong place how to do? In fact, after the pain after the standard training for physicians, the hospital doctor must master the treatment is one of the routine operation. The operation process is not complicated, the key is the patient supine neck after fully relax, doctors use index finger or middle finger to the index finger, tip of the important dial to the lateral vascular treatment patients. Into the bone surface after the injection of drugs, before and after 1 minutes to complete the entire operation, a course of general 10 - 14 days.
How does the stellate ganglion block (SGB) treat cervical headache?
Cervical headache is a common and frequently occurring disease affecting human health. Cervical headache refers to the neck or shoulder and the shoulder of the organic or functional damage caused by a group of ipsilateral headache syndrome, often accompanied by neck tenderness, and cervical nerve stimulation. Vertebral artery type of cervical spondylosis is a common type of cervical spondylosis. This disease is related to the cervical sympathetic nerve stimulation caused by vertebral artery spasm, which is an important cause of symptoms such as dizziness, headache and so on. SGB plays an essential role in the treatment of such diseases, this method not only by the central role of hypothalamic function to maintain the stable environment, so that the body of the plant nerve function, endocrine function and maintain normal immune function; through peripheral function areas of sympathetic nerve fibers innervating the cardiovascular exercise, glandular secretion, muscle tension, bronchoconstriction and pain transmission also inhibited, promote local inflammatory exudate and absorption material induced pain, tissue block pain a The new supersedes the old. enhanced muscle tissue ischemia pain a vicious cycle, so as to enhance the therapeutic effect of cervical paravertebral block.
Studies have shown that repeated SGB, the plant nerve is a resurrection exercise, can be restored due to increased sympathetic activity caused by the destruction of the sympathetic vagal balance. Norepinephrine (norepinephrine, NE) in blood is a sensitive index reflecting sympathetic nervous activity. The results showed that the serum NE in patients with pain, cancer and climacteric syndrome decreased significantly after SGB, but remained within the normal range, while the plasma NE concentration in normal subjects after SGB was changed, but the difference was not significant. At the same time, SGB can improve the blood supply of tissues and organs, and improve the abnormal hemorheology indexes, including reducing the high viscosity of whole blood and red blood cell volume and so on. In addition, SGB increases the cerebral blood flow more than any drug, and the increase in hypothalamic blood flow plays an important role in maintaining the hormonal balance of the pituitary gland. In addition, it has been reported that the cellular and humoral immune function of patients with chronic diseases after SGB were improved.
Welcome to my Department of counseling and treatment, afraid of injections can also do stellate ganglion laser treatment, the effect will be slower than blocking, but it can be tolerated, no pollution, no risk.
