What is a Suprascapular Nerve Block?

A suprascapular nerve block is an injection of a local anesthetic and steroid to block the nerves that influence pain in the shoulder. The suprascapular nerve is formed from nerve fibers from the C4, C5, and C6 nerve roots, and it supplies feeling to the shoulder.

Prior to the steroid injection you will be positioned on your stomach. The injection site will be cleaned and local anesthetic will be used to numb the effected area. To ensure proper needle placement, your physician will utilize fluoroscopic x-ray technology or ultrasonic guidance. When the physician is assured the needle is in the correct location, a mixture of steroid and local anesthetic will be injected.
