What is Interventional Pain Management?
The interventional pain management doctors at Northwest Orthopaedic Specialists specialize in providing care for those suffering from acute and chronic pain.
Interventional Pain Management is an area of specialty to treat and manage chronic pain, that helps patients who suffer ongoing discomfort from conditions and disorders, such as chronic low back pain, neck pain, complex regional pain syndrome, or muscle and bone pain.
The practice of interventional pain management uses an array of treatment methods for chronic pain because the pain experienced can vary from mild to excruciating, episodic or continuous and be inconvenient or completely incapacitating. At Northwest Orthopaedic Specialists, our pain management doctors understand that chronic pain forces you to live an adjusted lifestyle. Our pain management specialists will work with you to assess your condition and develop a treatment plan specific to your needs.
Cervical Epidural Steroid Injection
A cervical epidural steroid injection is intended to relieve pain in the neck, shoulders, and arms caused by a pinched nerve (or nerves) in the cervical spine. Conditions such as herniated discs, spinal stenosis, or radiculopathy can compress nerves, causing inflammation and pain. The medication injected helps decrease the swelling of nerves.
Lumbar Epidural Steroid Injection
A Lumbar epidural steroid injection is a procedure performed to relieve low back and radiating leg pain. This steroid medication can reduce the swelling and inflammation caused by spinal conditions.
Thoracic Epidural Steroid Injection
The Thoracic Epidural Steroid Injection is an injection performed to relieve pain in the upper back normally performed as an outpatient procedure.
