Interventional Pain Management

Finding safe, effective relief from chronic pain can seem impossible. If you’ve tried multiple treatment options without success, interventional pain management may be the solution you need.

What Is Interventional Pain Management?

Interventional pain management uses a multidisciplinary approach to diagnose and treat conditions that cause pain. The goal is twofold. First is relieving your pain. Second, but no less important, is correcting the underlying cause of that pain.

Saguaro Pain Clinic uses minimally invasive interventional pain management techniques working in conjunction with therapy to help you get back to your normal life quickly and safely.

What Does "Multidisciplinary" Mean?

A multidisciplinary approach uses multiple healthcare professionals to achieve optimum results. In addition to your primary care doctor, this may include specialists, physical therapists, occupational therapists, and mental health providers.

The most important member of your multidisciplinary team is you. This is particularly true if your treatment plan includes physical therapy exercises performed at home, increased physical activity, and/or dietary changes. The patient taking control of their treatment – and their overall health – is a central tenet of holistic healthcare.

Interventional Pain Management Techniques

Saguaro Pain Clinic provides the following interventional pain management techniques:

  • Nerve blocks interrupt pain signals that travel from your nerves to your brain.
  • Injections at the pain point help numb the area. Depending on your condition, you may require epidural steroid, facet joint, or trigger joint injections.
  • A medial branch block helps determine whether a specific nerve or part of the body is causing your pain. Although a medial branch block is more of a diagnostic tool, it can also provide pain relief.
  • Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is effective when treating lower back or neck pain – particularly in patients who have arthritis. The radio waves used in RFA create an electrical current that heats nerve tissue, decreasing pain signals. RFA procedures are usually preceded by a medial branch block.
  • Regenerative therapy injections, like PRP, which helps promote the body’s natural healing properties to repair the issue causing your pain. PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma. The process uses concentrated plasma from the patient’s own blood to boost the body’s healing and growth factors for faster healing after an injury. Amniotic fluid allograft uses amniotic fluid donated by the mother during a live, caesarean birth. This fluid contains cytokines, growth factors, and proteins that promote healing.

Your interventional pain management team may also prescribe physical therapy and/or occupational therapy exercises. You may also be encouraged to make lifestyle changes that support these efforts, such as following a healthier diet, increasing physical activity, or quitting smoking.

What to Expect from Saguaro Pain Clinic

Your first appointment with Saguaro Pain Clinic starts with a physical exam and complete medical history. This includes:

  • Current symptoms, including when they began (approximately) and whether they were preceded by illness or acute trauma
  • Lab work or x-rays related to your current condition
  • Medications you take, including over-the-counter drugs and supplements
  • Previous treatments you’ve tried, including alternative therapies like massage or acupuncture

Once we complete your physical exam and take your medical history, your intervention pain management doctor will perform any necessary diagnostic tests, such as x-rays, MRIs, and/or CT scans.

After analyzing your diagnostics and medical history, we work with you to develop an interventional pain management treatment plan, customized to meet your unique needs.
