Are you living with chronic neuropathic pain? If so, you know how debilitating it can be. Fortunately, there are a variety of interventional pain management treatments available to help reduce the pain and improve your quality of life. Let’s take a look at some of the most common interventional pain management treatments and how they can help.

 

Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS)

Spinal cord stimulation is a type of neuromodulation therapy used to treat chronic neuropathic pain. It involves the implantation of an electrical device in the lower back that sends electrical pulses to the spinal cord or nearby nerves. This helps block nerve signals associated with discomfort and reduces both acute and chronic neuropathic pain.

 

Ketamine Infusions

Ketamine infusions are a form of anesthetic that can help alleviate neuropathic pain by blocking NMDA receptors in the brain and increasing serotonin levels. This can provide relief from intense, burning sensations associated with neuropathic pain as well as depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), and other mood disorders.

 

Medications

In addition to SCS and ketamine infusions, there are also medications available for treating neuropathic conditions. These include topical creams or ointments, anticonvulsants, antidepressants, opioid medications, and over-the-counter medications like ibuprofen or acetaminophen. Some medications may have side effects such as drowsiness or nausea so it’s important to talk to your doctor before starting any new medication regimen.

 

Summary

Neuropathic pain is a difficult condition to manage but there are interventions available that can help reduce the discomfort associated with it. Spinal cord stimulation, ketamine infusions, and medications are all viable options depending on your individual needs and preferences. It’s important to discuss all of these options with your healthcare team to find a treatment plan that works for you. With proper treatment, you can get back on track toward living your best life again!
