*Interventional pain management aims to relieve, reduce or manage pain. We achieve this through a series of minimally invasive pain blocking techniques. Moreover, it helps you return to your daily life without having to rely on pain medications.
Pain management is any treatment that doesn’t invade the body to reduce pain. It works to cover the pain rather than address the cause of the pain or help the body deal with the pain. It includes over-the-counter medications and opioid treatments to manage flareups.
Interventional pain management uses minimally invasive procedures to interfere with the pain cycle. Furthermore, they block the pain from transmitting through the body at the root source.
This helps with a broad spectrum of pain. Including those associated with injuries and fibromyalgia. There are many types of interventional pain management that vary in terms of invasiveness. Our doctors recommend different approaches depending on your health condition, symptoms, etc.
*Specialized treatment options are available at QLMC to treat and manage pain.
