What Is Interventional Pain Treatment?
Interventional pain treatment is a subspecialty of pain management that focuses on a wide range of pain-blocking techniques. When other types of conservative treatment methods have not been successful in addressing pain and discomfort, interventional pain solutions are often effective. At EmergeOrtho, we utilize advanced technology to accurately diagnose and treat patients for a range of pain-producing conditions and injuries.
Much of the success of interventional pain solutions is dependent upon the expertise and skill set of the prescribing physician. Among our specialists are physicians who are board-certified by the American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation or the American Board of Anesthesiology.
