Interventional pain management

Interventional pain management involves special procedures to treat and manage pain. „Interventional“ procedures include injections of an anesthesic medication or corticosteroid at the spine around nerves or in to joints. Mostly the injections are done under fluoroscopy. The injection achieves the best result if the pain cause can be correctly identified. This requires a good patient history, clinical examination and interpretation of diagnostic images.

These are the most common injections:

  • Facet joint injections
  • Epidural injections (mostly caudal and lumbar)
  • Selective root blocks
  • Sacroiliac joint injection
