Diagnostic Block


A diagnostic block is a nerve block that is used to locate the source of pain. Diagnostic nerve blocks use injections of local anaesthetic to block the signals travelling along a specific nerve. If this relieves the pain, that nerve must be involved in producing it. If not, the pain must be coming from elsewhere.
