Interventional Pain Medicine Q&A
What is interventional pain medicine?
Interventional pain medicine includes a wide array of treatment options, rather than simply taking medications, to eliminate long-lasting pain. Dr. Shah and his team offer a personalized, multidisciplinary approach to treat:
- Nerve pain
- Post-surgery pain
- Neck and back pain
- Shoulder pain
- Knee pain
- Sacroiliac pain
- Other types of chronic pain
You might experience long-lasting discomfort because of arthritis, another chronic disease, an automobile accident, a fall, or sports-related injuries.
Which interventional pain medicine treatment is right for me?
To find out what’s causing musculoskeletal discomfort, Dr. Shah reviews your medical history and symptoms. He completes a comprehensive physical examination and might recommend X-rays, blood tests, MRIs, CT scans, other imaging procedures, or nerve tests to diagnose your condition and the root cause of discomfort.
What are my interventional pain medicine options?
Some of the many interventional pain medicine services available at SamWell Institute for Pain Management include:
Physical therapy is a holistic treatment for chronic pain. Dr. Shah shows you exercises and stretches that can offer long-lasting relief.
Massage therapy manipulates soft tissues to relieve nerve pressure, tight muscles, and pain naturally. It’s often a relaxing experience that can reduce stress and anxiety.
Anesthetic or steroid injections can diminish pain and inflammation, increasing your overall quality of life without surgery.
Spinal cord stimulation, dorsal root ganglion stimulation, and peripheral nerve stimulation use a specialized device to deliver electrical impulses to targeted nerves and other tissues to block pain signals and relieve discomfort.
Minor surgical procedures
Dr. Shah might recommend a minor surgical procedure to implant a spacer in your spinal cord or complete minimally invasive spinal decompression to reduce nerve pressure and chronic discomfort.
