Stellate Ganglion injections are a common method of treatment for Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) and shingles that affect the head, face, neck or arms. It can be used to either diagnose or treat pain. The injection blocks the sympathetic nerves that are located on either side of the voice box in the neck.
