Pain Management

Interventional Pain Management a treatment method that uses techniques to block pain so that everyday activities are not a struggle. Interventional pain management is used to diagnose, reduce and relieve pain.

Interventional Pain Management is often used when a patient experiences pain that interferes with their daily activities and ability to work when other treatment options have not been effective. When pain medication and other conservative treatment options are not successful in relieving pain, more aggressive options may be considered.

Types of Pain Management

There are many types of Interventional Pain Management treatment options. The treatment method that is used for you will depend on your medical history, source of pain, location of pain and your objectives. Your pain management doctor will discuss which options are best for you, given your particular circumstances.

  • Nerve blocks – Nerves to the brain signal your pain. Nerve blocks interrupt these signals to relieve pain. Some nerve blocks are minimally invasive while others require surgical implantation.
  • Injections – Injections target specific regions of your body to relieve pain. They typically include a steroid and a numbing agent. Possible options include: epidural injections, facet injections, knee injections, hip bursa injections, shoulder injections, ankle injections, sacroiliac injections, and trigger point injections.
  • Radio Frequency Nerve Ablation – radio frequency nerve ablation (RFA) is often used to treat lower back and neck pain caused by arthritis. Radio wages create an electrical current to heal nerve tissue. This treatment option helps to decrease pain signals.
