Stellate Ganglion Block for Long COVID Symptoms

Researchers have found roughly 40% of those that have recovered from COVID-19 are still facing viral-like symptoms, an experience known as long COVID. Symptoms vary, but include loss of taste/smell, fatigue, brain fog, and joint pain.


Providers at Advanced Spine and Pain (ASAP) have used Stellate Ganglion Blocks (SGBs) throughout their careers for a variety of reasons and recent research has indicated that SGBs may reduce symptoms of long COVID. See the research here.

Stellate Ganglion Blocks allow patients to reset their bodies by rebalancing the relationship between the nervous and immune systems with few associated risks. By using a local anesthetic in the anterior region of the neck, an SGB targets cervical sympathetic chain activity and allows for the body to reboot the autonomic nervous system.

At ASAP we’ve already been treating patients with long COVID symptoms with this simple therapy. If you or someone you know has persistent COVID symptoms, please ask whether this is the right treatment!


Advanced Spine and Pain is a leading pain management group based in Phoenix, AZ, and quickly expanding throughout the state. Offering minimally-invasive pain care services, the ASAP group consists of Arizona's top pain management specialists, including Drs. Abram Burgher, Todd Turley, and Jarrett Leathem.
