Patients suffering from chronic or acute joint or muscle pain are often advised to go for complex surgeries, but they are not always prepared to undergo risky procedures. For patients who want to explore options beyond the realm of surgery, they should opt for minimally invasive interventional pain relief procedures.
Pain Medicine is recognized as a separate branch of medicine that requires specialized training. It is concerned with the practice of prevention, evaluation, rehabilitation and treatment of physical pain. The main objective of interventional pain management is to pinpoint the source of the pain for a patient and direct attention and treatment specifically to that area. Interventional treatments are preferred to the traditional medication or surgical procedures because of their proximity to proximity to pain generating areas and the relatively small doses of medications utilized to achieve benefit and ability to show changes over time, allowing the body to recover and reform on its own.
