Interventional Pain Management


If you live with pain that won't go away, you know how frustrating it can be. Interventional pain management is a branch of medical care that can help. Specialists in this field find the cause of your pain. They treat it at its source. This can give you a better quality of life.

Who can benefit?

Interventional pain management may help you if you have pain that lasts for a long time. That's known as "chronic pain." You can develop chronic pain because of illness or injury. It can also be from surgery or some other medical treatment.

Types of care

Interventional pain management specialists manage chronic pain with things like nerve blocks, joint injections, nerve stimulation and radiofrequency ablation. Different types of pain respond to different methods. Your pain specialist will work closely with the rest of your healthcare team to create a plan that's right for you. You'll take an active role in your own care, too. You'll give valuable feedback about your pain and make important decisions about your treatment.


Although some chronic pain can never be cured, interventional pain management can help reduce it. And it can give you a plan to cope with your pain. Talk to your doctor for more information about care for chronic pain.
