Interventional pain management can help manage some patient’s pain. Many interventional pain procedures are complex and require the use of advanced imaging techniques such as fluoroscopy, digital subtraction, angiography and computerized tomography to accurately guide needles to the proper location to treat pain.
Treatment should be carefully selected to best increase the chance to alleviate pain and reduce the risk of harm. Before treatment, physicians should review a patient’s medical history and perform a physical examination, diagnostic testing and imaging to determine diagnosis.
Interventional pain management constitutes the practice of medicine and should be performed by a trained physician as procedures include the following risks: persistent or worsened pain, bleeding, infection, nerve damage, paralysis or even death.
