Chronic pain is debilitating, and no one wants to live with it. If you are one of the millions of Americans living with chronic pain, you may be struggling to find an effective solution to relieve pain.
We all experience pain at some point. This is not to say that you have to live with it – especially if it prevents you from enjoying life.
Interventional pain medicine uses nonsurgical methods to target the source of your pain.
At Lynx Healthcare, we believe that the first step to treatment is an accurate diagnosis, which is why we utilize only the most advanced diagnostic tools. Then, we target the source of your pain to alleviate your symptoms using proven and effective treatment methods.
Here are some examples of interventional pain medicine approaches we offer:
We want you to be comfortable with the procedure, which is why we offer regional anesthetics and conscious sedation as options for patients undergoing an interventional pain medicine procedure. The procedure is quick and should take no more than 15 minutes. However, at least an hour is needed, which includes prep time and recovery.
A combination of treatment methods may be used for a greater reduction of inflammation and more effective relief from pain. Interventional medicine also works best with physical rehabilitation to help restore mobility and normal range of motion.
The health care providers at Lynx Healthcare believe that the interventional approach provides longer-lasting relief from pain than traditional methods. As much as possible, our physicians will try to avoid recommending pain medication and invasive surgical interventions when it comes to treating pain. With minimally invasive procedures, there is very little downtime and healing time is faster. We want you to be able to resume your day-to-day activities as quickly as possible.
