Interventional Pain Management Q & A

What is interventional pain management?

Interventional pain management is a medical specialty that focuses on the relief of acute, chronic, and cancer-related pain. The doctors at Republic Spine and Pain have spent years studying human physiology and the complexities of pain. They offer comprehensive evaluations to diagnose and assess pain problems, including specialized testing. 

After diagnosing the cause of your pain, your doctor creates a customized treatment plan, including a variety of minimally invasive treatments to alleviate your pain as well as physical therapy and other rehabilitative therapies to support your recovery. 

While Republic Spine and Pain offers medication management, the doctors try to avoid relying on medication. Medication merely masks your pain, while interventional treatments aim to resolve the cause of your pain for lasting relief.

Republic Spine and Pain provides a wide range of interventional pain management treatments, including:

  • Vertiflex┬« Superion┬« procedure

  • Trigger point injections

Your doctor creates a personalized, multidisciplinary treatment plan that includes the treatments and therapies you need to lead a healthy, pain-free life. 

What are the benefits of interventional pain management?

Interventional pain management is a highly adaptable field of medicine. For example, the doctors provide minimally invasive treatments that can help you avoid surgery. At the same time, they can also offer treatments to ease your pain after an operation, including the painful symptoms of failed back surgery. 

The goal of interventional pain management is to help you lead a healthy, fulfilling, pain-free live. Republic Spine and Pain wants not only to alleviate your pain but address the condition causing it for long-lasting relief and an improved quality of life.
