What is Interventional Pain Management?
Interventional Pain Management is a discipline of medicine devoted to the diagnosis and treatment of pain related disorders. Interventional pain medicine utilizes a multimodal approach to provide a full range of treatments and services for patients suffering from chronic and/or acute pain.
The goals of interventional pain management are to relieve, reduce, or manage pain and improve a patient’s overall quality of life through minimally invasive techniques specifically designed to diagnose and treat painful conditions. Interventional pain management also strives to help patients return to their everyday activities quickly and without heavy reliance on medications.
Instead of relying on medication alone, Interventional Pain Management utilizes epidural injections, physiotherapy, regenerative injections, electrostimulation, nerve blocks and implantable drug delivery systems to help our patients get back to their day to day lives. These therapies produce better outcomes than medication alone and are particularly helpful for patients who have previously tried other therapies that were not successful.
