Interventional Pain Management

Interventional Pain Management

Interventional Pain Management Methods You Might Not Know About?

Are you one of the many people who live every day in chronic pain? Did you know there are ways to treat that pain through interventional pain management?

Whether you deal with chronic headaches, pain from a spinal injury, or any number of other painful conditions, there are methods that can help lessen or even eliminate the pain altogether.

Here are a few procedures especially for back and neck pain you may not have even known existed:

1. Inserting an intrathecal pump - for people suffering from unbearable pain but aren't able to withstand high doses of morphine or other pain medication taken orally. It's inserted surgically next to the spinal cord and medication is administered either constantly or at a rate programmed by a computer.

2. Lumbar Discography - a type of injection method that actually is intended to cause and thereby isolate pain in a spinal disc in order to be sure it's the appropriate disc for spinal fusion, which will then eliminate the pain.

3. Facet Joint Injections - injections similar to cortisone to help relieve pain in the neck or back. They're put into the spinal facet joints of people suffering from chronic and severe lower or upper back pain, neck pain or headaches, possibly caused by an injury or age-related arthritis.

4. Epidural Lysis of Adhesions - breaks off scar tissue within the epidural area of the spine if this scar tissue is causing nerve pain. It's done by inserting a needle (while sedated) into the epidural area just above the tailbone. A catheter is then inserted through the needle to allow fluids to flow through which will dissolve the scar tissue and administer anti-inflammatory as well as pain medication.

5. Trigger Point Injection - an injection of a local anesthetic or corticosteroid to relieve pain caused by small tight areas or "trigger points" in muscle tissue that tend to radiate pain to other areas of the body. One treatment is enough for most situations, but with something such as fibromyalgia it may be an ongoing treatment regime.

These are only a few of the many procedures that could significantly lessen or eliminate chronic pain. Some procedures are administered as a last resort when nothing else seems to work, but if you're suffering from any kind of chronic pain, check into these possible options for a better quality of life.
