Improving Your Quality of Life with Interventional Pain Management

If you’ve ever suffered from severe chronic or acute pain, you’ll know that the effects can be devastating. Intense pain can stop you from doing a whole host of activities, including fundamental daily chores and some of your favorite hobbies. For people with relentless pain, even relaxing and reading a book could become almost impossible.

So, how can you address pain that affects your quality of life? For some people, conservative methods such as medication and exercise are enough to fix the issue. If you’ve been struggling to combat your pain and resume everyday activities, however, it may be time to consider interventional pain management.

What is interventional pain management?  

Interventional pain management represents a collection of pain-reducing techniques designed to restore movement and improve patients’ quality of life. A typical interventional pain management plan may include measures such as surgery, nerve blocks, steroidal injections, and other specialized drug delivery systems.

Broadly speaking, interventional pain management is recommended when a patient’s pain is so severe that it significantly limits movement and when other, more conservative treatments have not worked.

What are the different types of interventional pain management?

There are many different types of interventional pain management in use today. The type of treatment you’re recommended will depend on the nature and location of your pain, as well as the level of invasiveness you’re willing to tolerate. Common recommendations include:

  • Infusions: Infusions allow pain relief drugs to be delivered directly into the patient’s body. The site of delivery will depend on the source of your pain. Examples include epidural infusions delivered via the spinal cord and intrathecal infusions delivered directly into the brain.
  • Nerve blocks: Nerve blocks work to interrupt pain signals before they reach the brain. There are several different types of nerve block, from minimally invasive treatments to those requiring surgery. Surgical interventions tend to offer more permanent results.
  • Injections: Injections target different parts of the body and generally include a steroid and a numbing agent. Common examples include trigger joint injections and facet joint injections.
  • Spinal cord stimulation: This technique involves the insertion of electrical leads close to the spinal column, as well as the insertion of a small generator into the buttock or abdomen. This generator emits signals that interrupt the brain’s pain perception capabilities.
  • Radiofrequency ablation: Radiofrequency ablation offers relief to those with neck and lower back pain. It is particularly effective in those with arthritis and involves aiming radio waves at nerve tissues.
  • Peripheral nerve field stimulation: This treatment is similar to spinal cord stimulation but can be used locally on other parts of the body.
