Are nerve block procedures for back pain safe?

The procedure is performed under X-ray guidance in an operating room environment. It is an outpatient procedure that only takes about 20 minutes. The procedure is an injection using a needle and, as with any injection, there is a small risk of bleeding or infection. There is also a risk that the needle could damage other structures. However, given that this is an image-guided procedure, these risks are very low.
