Menopause and Hot Flashes

Up to 80% of women are affected by hot flashes during menopause. This unwanted menopausal side effect can be significantly reduced using stellate ganglion blocks. Envision Orthopaedics & Spine is committed to helping women get the relief they desperately need using this non-invasive, injection therapy. Just a single dose can reduce hot flashes for up to six months.

During your treatment, we inject a tiny amount of local anesthetic into a bundle of nerves (stellate ganglion) located at the base of the neck. This temporarily deactivates the group of nerves that are responsible for your fight or flight responses during stress. Stellate ganglion blocks are proven to reduce excessive sweating as well as control nerve pain in patients.

What are the symptoms/treatments for Hot Flashes?

Hot flashes can be a disruptive, embarrassing, and uncomfortable experience. Your hot flash may range from a 15-minute clammy feeling to 45 minutes of a drenching sweat. Although there are many alternative hot flash treatments on the market, such as hormone therapy, oral medications, and botanical therapies that may help, they often carry undesirable risks and side effects. Envision Orthopaedics & Spine is pleased to offer stellate ganglion blocks as the latest breakthrough in effectively reducing hot flashes in women.
