Interventional Pain Management
Interventional Pain Management techniques are nonsurgical methods to manage and treat your pain. It is used after conservative nonsurgical treatments have been exhausted, but prior to resorting to surgery. The primary goal of interventional pain management is to improve the patient’s quality of life. It is used to manage chronic pain through the use of various treatments like epidural injections, nerve blocks, and the occasional nerve ablation. Pharmaceuticals can also be used to manage the symptoms of pain. Your treatment options vary per the severity of your condition. Spine and Orthopedic Center of New Mexico first identifies the root cause of your pain through our advanced diagnostic techniques, and then creates a pain management plan that best suits your needs. It is important for patients to understand that interventional pain management may not be able to fully manage your pain, and that surgery may still be necessary.
