Interventional Pain Management

Interventional pain management (IPM) is for patients with chronic pain who have exhausted other treatment methods. At Pain Care Clinics, we house a qualified multi-talented team which is able to include IPM as one of our pain management tools.

We use IPM to provide a full range of treatments for patients with acute or chronic pain. We choose our techniques to be minimally invasive when we are diagnosing and treating your condition.

The goal of IPM is to relieve, reduce, or manage pain and improve a patient’s quality of life. We also want to help patients return to their everyday activities fast and without reliance on medications.

PCC Interventional Pain Management clinics perform image-guided procedures such as:
  • Epidural Steroid Injections: X-ray-guided injections of low doses of corticosteroids into the source of the pain; it is used to treat pain in the neck, shoulders, arms, upper back, lower back, buttocks, or legs. Local anesthesia or sedation is used to make the patient comfortable.
  • Medial Branch Blocks/Facet Joint Injections: X-ray-guided injections are used for this procedure. We use the injections to diagnose and treat pain in the small head, neck, back, and buttocks joints. This treatment is appropriate when we suspect arthritis is the cause of pain.
  • Radio-frequency Nerve Ablations: We will use X-ray guided radiofrequency to target and disable nerves responsible for back or neck pain. We also use local anesthesia or sedation to make you comfortable during this procedure.
  • Major Joint Injections: We will use injections, guided by an X-ray or ultrasound, to treat pain in major joints. These injections will contain corticosteroids or local anesthetics. This procedure can be used to treat pain from a variety of causes, including osteoarthritis. We use local anesthesia or sedation to make you comfortable during this procedure.
