Long-Haul Covid Treatment
What symptoms of long-haul Covid do you treat?
- Parosmia (altered sense of taste/smell) and Anosmia: While most patients recover their sense of taste and smell, some experience significant problems resulting in problems with diet and poor nutrition.
- Brain Fog: Some patients continue to have difficulty with memory and concentration.
- Fatigue: Often patients report feeling tired in their head, neck, and upper torso.
- Orthostatic Intolerance: Dizziness is a reported residual symptom for many long-haul COVID patients.
What is the treatment for long-haul Covid?
An outpatient treatment that takes less than 30 minutes, a Stellate Ganglion Block (SGB) blocks the signals traveling from the stellate ganglion to the brain. It can reduce or eliminate various COVID-induced symptoms. This is done by injecting medication into the nerves on either side of the patient’s voice box. SGB has been clinically proven to effectively treat an overactive sympathetic nervous system in the head and neck region. Patients can return to normal activities the day after the treatment. As experts in pain management, we provide SGB to help patients find relief from pain as well as long-haul COVID symptoms.
