Bellevue WA Stellate Ganglion Block Therapy | PTSD/Trauma Anxiety Relief Launch


The center’s recently announced procedure involves the injection of a local anesthetic into the stellate ganglion, the collection of nerves that controls fight-or-flight responses. While the medication will only last for several hours, the practice states that the temporary cessation of the sympathetic system causes it to reset, leading to more lasting relief from symptoms.

Those who have suffered from a traumatic event often have difficulty returning to normality. Psychotherapy-based approaches have varying degrees of success in resolving these issues. The new stellate ganglion block (SGB) therapy from Interventional Orthopedics of Washington provides a fast-acting medical alternative that has shown significant promise.

The health advice website provides some further insights into the applications of stellate ganglion block therapy. Along with nerve injuries and circulatory problems, such as causalgia and shingles, it highlights the use of SGB for several mental health conditions, including PTSD.

Indeed, Interventional Orthopedics states that the new treatment is suitable for those who have experienced the death of a loved one, a serious injury such as a motor vehicle accident, victims of childhood abuse or trauma, sexual abuse victims, and veterans or active military personnel.

The procedures are performed on an outpatient basis at Interventional Orthopedics’ private facility, using ultrasonic guidance. Unlike counseling or other psychotherapy approaches, the practice states that clients may require as little as 1 or 2 visits, representing a significantly faster outcome. For those requiring more than 1 injection, visits are typically spaced 2 or 3 weeks apart.

One local patient recently stated: “Dr. Silva is very personable and explains every detail of the procedures he performs. He spends enough time with his patients to answer any of their questions. The staff members are very professional and caring. I highly recommend this practice to anybody interested in alternative orthopedic medicine.”
