Pain Management Q & A

What is interventional pain management?

Interventional pain management or medicine diagnoses and treats conditions that cause physical discomfort. Specifically, it uses a multidisciplinary approach to identify and relieve ailments that result in acute or chronic pain.

Interventional pain management uses a conservative, minimally invasive approach. The goal is to relieve, reduce, or manage pain, so you can go to work, exercise, and perform other routine tasks. 

What treatments does interventional pain management provide?

The team at Pain Care, LLC, offers a variety of interventional pain management treatments, including:

Epidural injections

Epidural injections involve your Pain Care, LLC, provider administering a solution of anesthetic and steroid medication into the epidural space around your spine. Injections provide immediate relief and last for an average of three months.

Nerve, root, and medial branch blocks

Nerve, root, and medial branch blocks are other types of injections. They can determine the source of your pain, or they can block a specific nerve (or group of nerves) to relieve pain and improve your mobility. 

Regenerative medicine

Regenerative medicine uses natural growth factors, like platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or stem cells, to produce new, healthy tissues. These treatments are minimally invasive, present few side effects, and encourage your body’s natural healing process. 

Spinal cord stimulation

Spinal cord stimulation uses electrical impulses to prevent pain signals from reaching your brain. The team at Pain Care, LLC, has access to the latest neuromodulation devices from renowned brands like Nevro®, Stimwave Technologies, Medtronic, and Boston Scientific.

Radiofrequency ablation

Radiofrequency ablation is a minimally invasive procedure that uses an electrical current to heat up an area of nerve tissue. Ultimately, the heat prevents the nerves from sending pain signals to your brain, providing lasting relief from chronic pain.

Joint injections

Joint injections use substances like hyaluronic acid to ease pain and encourage mobility. The team at Pain Care, LLC, offers hip, shoulder, knee, and facet joint injections.

Fluoroscopic-guided HYALGAN® Injection

A fluoroscopic-guided Hyalgan injection is an outpatient procedure designed to relieve joint pain. It’s safe, effective, and particularly beneficial for people with osteoarthritis.

Vertiflex™ Procedure

The Vertiflex Procedure is a minimally invasive treatment for spinal stenosis. It uses a small implantable device to increase space around your spinal column. The device relieves pressure on your nerves, making it easier to stand, walk, and stay physically active. 

Kyphoplasty/vertebroplasty

Kyphoplasty and vertebroplasty are minimally invasive procedures that correct compression fractures of the spine. During treatment, your provider injects bone cement through a small hole, restoring the structure of your vertebrae and relieving pain.

Neuroplasty

Neuroplasty is a minimally invasive procedure that addresses scar that affects spinal nerves. 

Decompression discectomy

If you experience a herniated disc, the team might recommend decompression discectomy. This outpatient procedure uses a small needle and a special probe to reduce the herniated portion of the disc, relieving pain. 

What type of interventional pain management benefits me?

To determine the type of interventional pain management that most benefits you, your Pain Care, LLC, provider reviews your medical history, asks about your symptoms, and conducts a comprehensive exam. If necessary, they might order additional tests, like blood work, X-rays, an MRI, or a CT scan. 

Once your provider identifies the source of your discomfort, they develop a custom pain management treatment plan to align with your needs. That might include one specific treatment (like spinal cord stimulation) or a combination of treatments.
