What is the Stellate Ganglion Injection?

The Stellate Ganglion Injection, or SGI, is a sympathetic nervous system “Re-Boot,” used to treat symptoms of anxiety, long-term pain syndromes, and stress disorders. The SGI has worked to help former naval and military personnel recover from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder following their return to civilian society. In nearly all of the cases that it was used, the SGI was found to have a significant impact on decreasing levels of depression, and anxiety, and improving the mental health of clients. Since its prominent success in the military community, the SGI has been used to treat a multitude of other behavioral illnesses and disorders. Additionally, athletes have begun to use the SGI to synchronize their brains and body so that they can perform optimally in competition.

How Does It Work?

The sympathetic part of the autonomic nervous system (ANS) normally prepares our body for emergencies (“fight or flight” response). It controls our heart rate, blood pressure, skin temperature, and the response of our eyes to light. It can also control the perception of pain, the ability to relax, focus our thoughts, function sexually, and respond to stress. When the sympathetic nervous system (SNS) is overwhelmed, generally from extreme stress, it becomes programmed to an inappropriately high set point. This causes the body to remain in a state of extreme, survival-level response, increasing an individual’s reaction to life’s everyday events. This is a STRESS INJURY, in which the brain is inappropriately stuck in a “fight or flight” response. This high setpoint cannot be corrected without resetting or re-booting that part of the nervous system, much like re-booting a computer that is stuck on an inappropriate or dysfunctional program. Many people have knowingly or unknowingly experienced an SNS STRESS INJURY, and as such cannot function physically, think clearly, relax, and enjoy being alive. The SGI works to “reset” the nervous system and restore it to its normal levels.
