Interventional Pain Management Q & A

What is interventional pain management?

Interventional pain management is a multidisciplinary approach in which medical professionals from several fields collaborate to help patients heal, get out of pain, and return to regular activities using noninvasive and minimally invasive techniques. 

How does interventional pain management work?

At Medicus Spine & Joint, a group of medical and holistic health practitioners works together to formulate a master recovery plan for you. Your care may include:

  • Chiropractic care
  • Acupuncture
  • Physical therapy
  • Mental health therapy for anxiety, depression, and other coexisting issues
  • Nutritional and dietary counseling

Interventional procedures are one of the key facets of interventional pain management because they can diagnose and treat the source of your pain. Procedures like facet joint injections and medial branch blocks can diagnose the cause of your pain and its specific location. 

Other procedures treat inflammation and pain, such as:

  • Epidural steroid injections to reduce inflammation and pain in the spine
  • Nerve block injections to numb specific nerves
  • Sacroiliac (SI) joint injections to block SI joint pain in the spine
  • Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) to deactivate inflamed and painful nerves using heat
  • Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections and other cellular restoration therapies

These are only some of the broad range of interventional pain management options available. The Medicus Spine & Joint specialists create well-rounded customized plans to help each patient recover to the fullest.

Does interventional pain management include pain medication?

Interventional pain management looks past pain medication, minimizing its use because it has some significant drawbacks. Pain medications, such as opioids, only work for around six hours at a time. 

With drugs like opioids, tolerance tends to build quickly, which creates a cycle of needing more and more of those drugs. Opioids are also highly habit-forming. 

Ultimately, opioids do nothing to help you recover. They’ll mask the pain for a while, but to get real relief, you need to address the source. Interventional pain management does exactly that: finds the cause of your pain and gives you long-lasting relief.

Medicus Spine & Joint specializes in the intricacies and complexities of pain: How it happens, how to stop it, and how to facilitate your complete recovery. Using their extensive multidisciplinary knowledge and experience, they can help you return to your life without relying on pain medication or undergoing major surgery.
