Suprascapular nerve transmits pain sensation especially from the top and back of the shoulder joint. It innervates some of the muscles around the shoulder joint. Entrapment of this nerve can also cause shoulder pain. Suprascapular nerve block is performed under x-ray or ultrasound guidance for a variety of painful shoulder conditions such as frozen shoulder, shoulder joint arthritis, rotator cuff tears, bursitis and nerve entrapment. A mixture of local anaesthetic and steroids is injected after confirming satisfactory needle positioning. Ultrasound offers the advantage that the spread of the drugs at the intended site can be confirmed. Radiofrequency treatment can help to prolong the pain relief.
