Stellate ganglion block and Light therapy
The stellate ganglion is like an acupuncture point at which the sympathetic nerves controlling the head, face, neck, upper limbs, chest, heart, bronchi, lungs, etc. are gathered. Stellate ganglion block (SGB) therapy affects the hypothalamus, which is the center of the autonomic nervous system, and relieves systemic sympathetic tension.
Position of stellate ganglion
Stellate ganglion block (SGB)
Stellate ganglion light therapy (SGL) (Superlizer)
The Superlizer provides photoirradiation therapy, and is therefore largely free of the pain, invasion, side effects, and complications associated with conventional nerve block using a needle.
The Superlizer is effective as a non-invasive, safe adjunctive therapy for stellate ganglion block (SGB).
Note: The Superlizer is suitable for patients with drug allergies, elderly people, and patients with hemorrhagic or other diseases for whom nerve block is not suitable.
