What is Interventional Pain Management?
Many therapies for pain control only cover up the real problem. With Interventional Pain Management, a pain doctor treats your problem at the source. Many times an inflammatory process in or near a nerve is the true cause of pain. By identifying the location of the problem with X-rays, CAT scans and MRI modalities, a pain doctor can place pain-relieving solutions at the site of injury and inflammation. Once the inflammation is resolved, much of the pain is then relieved. This therapy is useful in the treatment of many painful conditions such as sacroiliac joint problems, neck pain, back pain, sciatica, neuropathies, reflex sympathetic dystrophy, spinal stenosis, muscular/myofascial pain, post-herpetic neuralgia(shingles) and several other painful conditions. The treatments may include sacroiliac joint injections, epidural steroid injections, facet blocks, medial branch blocks, lumbar sympathetic blocks, stellate ganglion blocks, trigger point injections or other peripheral nerve blocks.
