What is Interventional Pain Management?
Interventional pain management encompasses a wide-ranging approach to treating patients who suffer from chronic or acute pain and relieving and reducing their discomfort. The treatments are often made up of minimally-invasive treatments. It is a good choice for those who have already tried many other treatments that have not yielded success.
For those who do have chronic or acute pain, finding the source of it can be a frustrating process and involve meeting with many different specialists. While it is important for medical professionals to be able to pinpoint the causality of the pain, the patient over time is more concerned with living a functional life. Interventional pain management can address these symptoms and provide much relief without the need to heavily rely on medication.
