They also employ advanced diagnostic tools like MRIs, X-rays, and nerve conduction studies to pinpoint the source of pain accurately.

When do I need to see an Interventional Spine and Pain specialist?
You may need to see an Interventional Spine and Pain specialist if you are experiencing persistent or severe pain in the spine or musculoskeletal system that has not responded to conservative treatments like physical therapy or medications.

How is Interventional Spine and Pain Medicine different from traditional surgical approaches?
Interventional procedures are usually minimally invasive, meaning they require only small incisions or none at all. This generally results in shorter recovery times and less risk compared to traditional surgical approaches. Many patients find they can return to normal activities much quicker following interventional procedures.

What types of treatments are available in Interventional Spine and Pain Medicine?
The field offers a range of treatments such as epidural steroid injections, facet joint injections, nerve blocks, radiofrequency ablation, and spinal cord stimulation, among others. These are designed to offer targeted relief and can often be performed on an outpatient basis.

How do I know if Interventional Spine and Pain Medicine is the right choice for me?
Determining if this specialty is the right fit for you usually starts with a comprehensive evaluation of your medical history, symptoms, and any prior treatments or surgeries you’ve had. Your physician may also recommend diagnostic tests like X-rays or MRIs. If your condition could benefit from minimally invasive procedures aimed at pain relief and function improvement, interventional spine and pain medicine might be an appropriate treatment option for you.
