Interventional Pain Management

Interventional pain management involves special procedures that strive to effectively treat and manage pain.  Under our umbrella of “Interventional” procedures is an array of treatments, which include, but are not limited to, injections of anesthetic medicines or steroids around nerves, tendons, joints, or muscles; implantations or spinal cord stimulators, insertions of drug delivery systems, and procedures that utilize radiofrequency ablation or cryoablation to stop a nerve from working for a prolonged period of time.

These techniques are essential in helping some patients:

  • Reduce the severity of pain and the amount of time pain is experienced
  • Increase the ability to perform activities in the home and at work
  • Overcome the social isolation caused from the inability to remain active
  • Learn new skills for effectively coping with pain
  • Improve the overall quality of life
  • Rehabilitate both physically and emotionally
