What you should know about Intercostal nerve blocks.
Intercostal nerve blocks are done to both diagnose whether chest wall or abdominal pain arises from intercostal nerves as well as to treat pain from damage to those nerves. Conditions that can cause pain from those nerves include pain from rib fractures as well as post-surgical pain from chest surgery.
