What are the benefits?
Like medical treatments, interventional pain procedures can assist you in the reduction of your pain, facilitate rehabilitation and overall functional recovery. Pain procedures can have the additional advantage of reducing your need for pain medications and thereby reduce any unwanted medication side effects. They can provide greater pain relief than medications alone and are much more precise by targeting the specific site of your pain. Pain procedures do not change the underlying pathology or cause of your pain, but can help promote healing in some cases.
