Interventional Pain Management Q & A

Joseph Cabaret, MD

What is interventional pain management?

Interventional pain management is designed to deliver minimally-invasive treatments directly to the source of your pain to provide you with relief.

Often used in combination with holistic therapies, physical therapy, and chiropractic care, interventional pain management includes cutting-edge treatments like nerve blocks and precision injections to reach the source of your pain.

Interventional pain management is beneficial for chronic conditions, a few of which include:

  • Chronic headaches
  • Face or mouth pain
  • Neck pain
  • Low back pain
  • Bone or muscle pain

Interventional pain management is only one component of comprehensive pain management, a whole-body approach to treating your pain.

What types of interventional pain management treatments are used?

While numerous interventional pain management treatments are available from Dr. Cabaret, some examples include:

Epidural steroid injection

Some pain originates in the spine even though you feel the discomfort in other parts of your body. Epidural steroid injections contain a combination of local anesthetic and anti-inflammatory medicines. These injections are delivered directly into the spine to relieve inflammation and pain felt in other areas.

Stem cell therapy

Stem cell therapy, or regenerative medicine, uses your body’s stem cells to help repair injured, diseased, or dysfunctional tissues.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy

Platelets are blood cells that contain growth factors and other substances that help with tissue repair. PRP, which typically includes 5-10 times more platelets than the same amount of normal blood, is injected into the pain site to encourage tissue regeneration and healing.

Spinal cord stimulation

Similar in theory to a cardiac pacemaker, Dr. Cabaret can implant a spinal cord stimulator near your spine with the goal of blocking or modifying nerve activity in the brain through electric pulses. Before implantation, however, he uses a nonsurgical trial to see if this treatment works for you.

Depending on your pain symptoms, Dr. Cabaret might recommend other interventional pain management treatments. A few examples include:

  • Radiofrequency ablation
  • Trigger point injections
  • Facet joint injections
  • Nerve blocks
  • Sacroiliac injections

Dr. Cabaret uses various types of imaging, such as ultrasound or X-rays, to guide the precision delivery of many interventional pain management therapies. Interventional pain management treatments are often part of a well-designed, comprehensive pain management plan.
