Nerve blocks and neurosurgery

The message of pain is carried to the brain through a complex pathway of nerves.

This pathway is divided into the central nervous system (the brain and the spinal cord), the peripheral nerves (the nerves outside of the spinal cord) and the sympathetic nerves (those that mainly go to internal organs).

Nerve blocks or neurosurgery can treat just about any nerve or any part of the central nervous system.

However, successful pain relief is much easier to achieve in certain areas and for certain types of pain.
