Stellate Ganglion Blocks Helps Relieve Long COVID

Stellate Ganglion Blocks (SGBs) help reboot the nervous system, allowing those still experiencing COVID-19 like fatigue, brain fog,  and loss of taste/smell post recovery.

Stop Hiding From COVID Symptoms & Reset Your Body

Stellate Ganglion Blocks may alleviate the symptoms of long COVID.

Roughly 40% of those that have recovered from COVID-19 are still facing viral-like symptoms, an occurrence known as long-haul COVID or long COVID. While it is unknown how long these symptoms may linger, SGBs have shown promise in decreasing the effects of  known COVID manifestations, like loss of taste/smell, fatigue, brain fog, and joint pain. 

The effects linked to long COVID include activated fight or flight responses, which can result in impaired blood flow, escalated inflammation, and increased pain sensitivity – similar to chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome, and other inflammatory diseases.

With a strong safety profile, Stellate Ganglion Blocks allow for patients to reset their body by rebalancing the relationship between the nervous and immune systems. 

What is a Stellate Ganglion Block?

By using a local anesthetic in the anterior region of the neck, targeting cervical sympathetic chain activity, a Stellate Ganglion Block allows for the body to reboot the autonomic nervous system by reduce fight or flight responses for roughly 24 hours. 

How Long Does The Procedure Take?

The entire office visit can take upto an hour. The actual minimally-invasive procedure is only a fraction of that time!

How Long Do SGB Results Last?

Studies have shown that results vary per patient and may last from a few months to a few years! On average, patients feel relief for 6 months.

Break The COVID Cycle

Ketamine Health Centers encourages patients to be more than their symptoms and take an active step towards resetting their body. Stellate Ganglion Block results on those with long COVID shows promising therapeutic outcomes, making it an attractive option for those still experiencing COVID symptoms.
