Intervention Pain & Physiatry

The search for effective pain treatment for individuals suffering from chronic pain can be a challenging and time-consuming process. These patients often find themselves being shuffled between primary care physicians, specialists, and various therapists in their quest for relief. For those who have exhausted other treatment options without success, Interventional Pain Management (IPM) may offer a viable solution. By employing pain-blocking techniques, IPM aims to alleviate discomfort and enhance the daily functioning and quality of life for chronic pain sufferers. This approach encompasses a range of treatment options, including surgery, electrostimulation, nerve blocks, and implanted drug delivery systems. When pain becomes debilitating and conventional treatments prove ineffective, interventional pain management steps in to diagnose and address painful conditions through minimally invasive procedures.
