What does Pain Management entail?
Pain problems can range from acute neck or back pain to intractable chronic conditions. Pain Management starts with a thorough history, physical examination and record review. Treatment plans may include interventional procedures, physical therapy and medications.

What is Interventional Pain Medicine?
Interventional Pain Medicine is the diagnosis and treatment of pain-related disorders using minimally-invasive interventional techniques such as injections and nerve blocks, in conjunction with other modalities of treatments such as non-surgical spinal axial decompression. Interventional Pain Medicine is similar to Interventional Cardiology where Cardiologists (Heart Specialists) perform minimally-invasive heart procedures that preclude the need for patients to have open-heart surgeries.

What are some of the interventional procedures?
The procedures are many, ranging from epidural corticosteroid injections to radiofrequency nerve ablation, to spinal cord stimulator implantation. The most common are epidural steroid injections, facet joint blocks and selective nerve root blocks. Most of the procedures are performed in outpatient setting, take less than 30 minutes, and require only local numbing. Sedatives are given to those who are very anxious about the treatments.
