In brief: Nerves near spine

A lumbar sympathetic block involves injection of local anesthetic onto the sympathetic nerves that rest on the front of the lumbar vertebral bodies.
The local anesthetic should disrupt sympathetically-mediated pain pathways traveling from the lower extremity to the spinal cord.
