Research has shown that SGB is an effective and minimally invasive treatment for eliminating many debilitating symptoms for a variety of conditions: Anxiety, Depression, Lymphedema, Migraines, Facial Pain, Upper Extremity Pain, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, Post-Herpetic Neuralgia, Hot Flashes, Hyperhidrosi
Patients suffering from elevated fight or flight responses, like in PTSD, will benefit from a SGB treatment on the nerves involved in mediating these responses. Specifically, this treatments resets the brain to baseline or pre-traumatic levels. Results and relief have been seen within 30 minutes and can last from a few months to years. Results vary per patient, but with minimal risks and no major side effects, this treatment helps patients regain control of their life!
This can either be a stand-alone treatment or in conjunction with Ketamine and other modalities for treatment of PTSD etc.
The FDA have not yet evaluated the success of LBP to treat PTSD. However, many current treatment available for treatment of depression, PTSD and debilitating anxiety are not currently FDA approved. This does not mean they don’t work, it simply means that more research is needed.
