Interventional Pain Management (aka Interventional Pain Medicine) is a medical sub-specialty which treats chronic or severe pain by disrupting the pain cycle using alternative interventions including, but not limited to:
- Facet Joint Injections
- Epidural Steroid Injections
- Nerve Blocks
- Radiofrequency Treatments
- Neuroaugmentation (such as spinal cord stimulation)
- Joint Fusion
- Lumbar Indirect Decompression
- Lumbar Sympathetic Block`
- Implantable drug delivery systems (such as intrathecal pumps)
By employing cutting-edge treatment options in conjunction with holistic therapies to relieve chronic pain, pain management physicians are able to effectively treat the whole patient, as opposed to addressing only their pain symptoms.
For instance, a minimally invasive outpatient procedure (such as a nerve block) may be used to reduce sensations of pain while physical therapy is indicated for strengthening an area of the body that’s causing the pain symptoms.
Who Can Benefit from Interventional Pain Management?
If you suffer from acute or chronic pain symptoms, interventional pain management may be the solution for you. This is particularly true if you have already tried more conventional treatment methods with little or no success in reducing or eliminating your pain.
Utilizing the most innovative technologies in interventional pain medicine, pain management specialists have achieved relief for many patients where other treatments have failed. They do this by using scientifically proven techniques to block or treat pain caused by conditions such as:
- Lower back pain
- Sacroiliac joint pain
- Lumbar disorders (such as Lumbar Spinal Stenosis)
- Peripheral nerve and joint disorders
- Pinched nerves
- Cervical disorders
- Back / neck disorders
- Headaches / migraines
- Myofascial pain syndrome
- Spinal disc ruptures
When is the Right Time to Consult an Interventional Pain Management Specialist?
If you have been living with pain for months or even years, and the overall quality of your lifestyle is inhibited by pain that limits your movement and daily activities, it’s a good time to consult with an expert pain management specialist who can help you determine whether one of the latest state-of-the-art treatment options can provide the relief you’ve been looking for.
Pain management specialists can often help you find a solution even when your primary care provider has been unsuccessful in locating the cause of your pain, or when medications and other conventional treatment options have brought you no relief.
The ultimate goal of interventional pain management is to diagnose, then reduce or eliminate a person’s pain to restore quality of life and return them to normal activities as much as possible. By employing an array of therapies as part of an overall treatment regimen, your interventional pain management specialist will often achieve success in relieving your pain where other methods have fallen short.
