Interventional pain management is a subspecialty of the medical specialty, pain managment, devoted to the use of invasive techniques such as facet joint injections, nerve block (interrupting the flow of pain signals along specific nervous system pathways), neuroaugmentation (including spinal cord simulation and perpheral nerve stimulation), Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP) vertebroplasty, kyphoplasty, nucleoplasty, endoscopic discectomy, percutaneous spine fusion and implantable drug delivery systems.
At MSR our goal is to treat patients from a conservative approach first before escalating to oral medication, injections and/or surgery. In the event of chronic debilitation pain, our medical staff here is equipped to handle complicated chronic pain cases with a team approach to treat different types of pain including complex pain syndromes.
Pain Management patients at MSR have easy access to a broad range of resources. Active collaboration with our physiatrists, physical therapists, chiropractors, massage therapist, and acupuncturist greatly broadens the diagnostic and treatment modalities available.
