Intercostal Nerve Block

 An intercostal nerve block is an injection of a steroid or other medication around the intercostal nerves that are located under each rib.  The steroid injected reduces the inflammation and/or swelling of tissue around the intercostal nerves, in between the ribs or in the chest wall. This may in turn reduce pain, and other symptoms caused by inflammation or irritation of the intercostal nerve and surrounding structures.
