Ganglion Impar Block

Ganglion impar block is an excellent way to treat chronic, neuropathic perinea pain from visceral and/or sympathetic pain syndromes. One place for this type of block is at the ganglion impar, a cluster of nerve cells in front of the joint between the sacrum and the coccyx. To get to this ganglion, a curved needle may be passed up from underneath the coccyx, or a needle may be passed through the sacrum/coccyx joint itself.
