Chronic pain is one of the most common reasons for a generalized doctor
visit, and it’s easy to see why. Not only can chronic pain take a myriad of forms
and impact virtually all areas in the body, but it’s often a problem without a simple
solution. Unlike a cut or an infection which can be cleared up with antibiotics or a
little self-care, chronic pain typically has deeper roots which are harder to identify
As such, one of the most effective ways to address chronic pain is through
Interventional Pain Management. Interventional Pain Management looks beyond
the standard solutions to try to find the actual cause and to find a treatment plan
and relief that lasts.
Instead of a trial-and-error approach, an expert Interventional Pain Management
Physician will spend time asking questions and researching the issue to find the
right solution for each patient. So how do you know if you’re the right candidate
for Interventional Pain Management? It starts by seeing if you identify with any of
the following qualifications…
1. Your Pain Isn’t Going Away
This point is arguably the number one reason why a patient should
investigate Interventional Pain Management as a treatment option. If your chronic
pain is not going away on its own, then it’s time to investigate real and concrete
solutions for long-term relief.
2. Your Pain Is Affecting Your Everyday Life
If your chronic pain is slowing you down or impacting your ability to work,
socialize, or enjoy life, then it’s time to get your life back. Chronic pain rarely
improves on its own without treatment. So even if you’re noticing minor impacts
in your daily life now, chances are these hindrances and disruptions will grow over
3. You Don’t Want to Take Pain Relievers Indefinitely
Prescription or over-the-counter pain medication can provide pain relief for
the short term, but they are not a long-term fix for your chronic pain. This is
because pain relievers address the symptoms and not the root cause; they will need
to be taken indefinitely and generally in stronger and stronger doses as your
tolerance grows. This point can lead to a dangerous and expensive cycle that
does not address the root problem of your pain.
4. You Are Wary of Surgeries
Surgeries may be able to help your pain. However, major surgeries can have
unintended side effects in addition to the long recovery time and expenses that
naturally accompany a major operation. Interventional Pain Management is a solid
way to explore all of your options and to confirm surgery is indeed necessary and
will fix your pain issue, well before you schedule a major and life-interrupting
5. You Have Not Found a Simple Solution
Perhaps you’ve tried prescription drugs, and they didn’t work, or maybe
you’ve seen several doctors and still haven’t identified a long-term cure for your
pain. Interventional Pain Management is a way to avoid multiple doctors’ visits
and numerous treatments and identify a real solution that works.
