Block back pain: These are nerves that control small joints in the back and neck. The blocks are done to help diagnose and treat the source of back or neck pain. If the blocks are helpful then you may be a candidate for an ablation procedure. Your doctor should have discussed all if this with you. If they didn't, then maybe you should get another opinion. These should be performed by a physician only.
