Stellate Ganglion Block for Patients with Long Covid Symptoms
Ketamine Clinic of South Florida is excited to offer a new treatment for patients suffering from loss or altered sense of taste and smell known as parosmia, as well as chronic fatigue and brain fog associated with lingering SARS-CoV-2, long covid symptoms.
Nearly 40% of patients who have recovered from Covid-19 continue to experience symptoms for months or years after the virus has passed. Many patients’ most troubling long-covid symptoms are a loss of taste, smell, and brain fog.
Recently medical professionals have found that a Stellate Ganglion block procedure treats some long-term symptoms of Covid-19, such as the loss of taste or smell. This highly effective, low-risk procedure is now available to patients in South Florida.
What is a Stellate Ganglion Block?
The Stellate Ganglion block is a low-risk, fast, and highly effective medical procedure that involves the application of a local anesthetic to the anterior region of the neck. This anesthetic procedure targets the cervical sympathetic chain, allowing the body to reboot parts of the nervous systems that may be compromised.
