Find Pain Relief That Lasts

Chronic and acute pain can turn anyone’s world upside down. Activities that were once enjoyable may be impossible due to intense pain. Even spending relaxing time with friends and family may become difficult.

Extreme, long-term pain can reduce quality of life and make every day a struggle.

If medications and other conservative treatment methods haven’t worked for you, don’t despair! There are many alternative ways to combat your chronic pain and return to a normal routine.

What is Interventional Pain Management?

Interventional pain management is a method that utilizes pain-blocking techniques to help make day-to-day activities less difficult, and effectively restore quality of life for patients. Surgery, electrostimulation, nerve blocks, or implantable drug delivery systems may be used as part of the treatment process.

Interventional pain management is generally used when pain is severe enough to interfere with daily activities, and other treatment types have not been successful in reducing pain. If you are searching for a solution to your chronic or acute pain, then it may be time to find an Interventional Pain Management doctor who can help.

Types of Interventional Pain Management Treatments

There are many types of Interventional Pain Management treatments. The type of treatment you receive will be based on your specific condition and symptoms, as each type of treatment varies in terms of invasiveness. Some of the most common Interventional Pain Management techniques include:

Nerve Blocks: Pain signals travel down nerves to the brain. Nerve blocks are used to interrupt these signals to provide pain relief. The type of nerve block depends will depend on your treatment plan, as some are minimally invasive and may last for hours or days. Other nerve blocks require surgical procedures and may be long-term or permanent.

Infusions: Infusions involve the delivery of pain relief drugs directly into the body. These are generally for longer-term use. Intrathecal Infusions are delivered into the subarachnoid space in the brain; Epidural Infusions are used in the spinal cord.

Injections: Some common types of injections are Epidural Steroid Injections, Facet Joint Injections, and Trigger Joint Injections. Each of these injections targets different pain spots in the body. Injections generally include a numbing agent and a steroid.
