Possibly: An lsb is usually done with skin local anesthesia first. This will cut down on the discomfort but once they get to the deep muscles it may get uncomfortable. That being said, people do it without sedation all the time and do just fine . Hope this helps!

It's a start: Generally, cervical radiculopathy is treated with physical therapy, non opioid nerve pain medications, and injections such as an epidural steroid injection. Pain medicine physicians specialize in these treatments. Depending on how comfortable your pcp is, they may start some medications (stay away from opioids), and prescribe pt. An epidural needs to be performed by a pm doc, however.

Questionable: An epidural may provide some pain relief from the procedure but it would not be a first choice. In this case the risks of an epidural would likely outweigh the benefits. A digital block, ankle block, or more proximal nerve block would work better and be more appropriate.
