Pain Management Q & A

What is interventional pain management?

Interventional pain management specializes in relieving pain that doesn’t improve with conservative medical care. By directly targeting the source of your pain, interventional treatments help patients avoid surgery, return to their daily activities, and enjoy a better quality of life.

How does interventional pain management work?

Interventional specialists employ numerous treatments and techniques that work by directly treating inflamed nerves or by stopping pain signals that travel through nerves to your brain.

You only feel the pain when your brain receives nerve signals from a part of your body that’s injured or has a painful condition. When those signals are blocked and your brain doesn’t get the message, your pain is significantly reduced.

These are a few examples of interventional treatments used to manage pain:

Steroid injections

The team at DYNAMIC Pain and Wellness injects steroids near inflamed nerves. As the medication reduces the inflammation, your pain improves. Epidural steroid injections, which go into the space along your spine and target specific spinal nerves, typically produce 3-6 months of pain relief.

Nerve blocks

Your doctor at DYNAMIC Pain and Wellness injects a local anesthetic (sometimes combined with steroid medication) near the nerves transmitting pain messages. Anesthetics effectively alleviate pain by interrupting the nerve signals.

Radiofrequency ablation

Using a needle-like device that sends out radiofrequency energy, your doctor can create a wound on a specific nerve. The wound blocks nerve signals and typically reduces pain for nine months to two years.

Spinal cord stimulation

Spinal cord stimulation uses electrical pulses to block the nerve signals. Since the device is implanted, it can stay in place and alleviate your pain until you have it removed.

What other pain management treatments might I receive?

In addition to interventional therapies, the team at DYNAMIC Pain and Wellness offers comprehensive care and multiple treatment options that provide the balance you need for ongoing pain relief.

These are a few of the treatment options that may be included in your pain management plan:

  • Physical therapy
  • Stem cell therapy
  • PRP injections
  • Joint injections
  • Medication management
  • Pain-relieving medications, including opioids
