Numbing before the cut can reduce chronic pain

If you are planning surgery, having your surgeon or anesthesiologist perform a nerve block or epidural may help cut your pain after surgery for many months after.
Michael H. Andreae, MD, and Doerthe A. Andreae, MD, reviewed 23 published trials comparing injections of local anesthesia or regional anesthesia injections (epidural, spinal or local blocks) vs conventional treatment of pain such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or morphine. Many studies showed that the patients who had a local or regional anesthesia had less chance of developing chronic pain after different surgical interventions. This technique of blocking nerves before they sense pain is in common practice in orthopedic and plastic surgery practices already. In practical terms, this study shows that it would be a good idea to ask your surgeon and anesthesiologist to consider using numbing medicine injections before an incision is made to help you reduce pain after your next surgery.
