What is Interventional Pain Management?

Interventional pain management is a growing field of medicine that is focused on treating chronic back pain. While there are many different causes of back pain, it is often difficult to determine the exact source of the pain. As a result, traditional treatments such as medication and physical therapy often fail to provide lasting relief. Our pain management doctors take a different approach, using a variety of techniques to target the source of the pain. By directly targeting the source of the pain, it can provide more long-term relief than traditional treatments. In addition, it is often less expensive than invasive spine surgery, making it an attractive choice for many patients.

What Conditions Cause Low Back Pain?

Back pain that happens suddenly is usually due to an acute injury of the muscles, connective tissues, bones, or discs in your spine. Sometimes it’s a symptom of internal conditions like a kidney infection or stone, so if you feel sick and are also in pain make sure you seek medical care immediately.

Back pain can also develop more slowly from repetitive strain or overuse. Making the same movements multiple times over extended periods overstresses the tissues, causing tiny injuries and inflammation.

Degenerative Disc Disease

Degenerative disc disease is a condition that occurs when the discs in the spine begin to break down. The discs act as cushions between the vertebrae, and they help to absorb shocks and protect the spine from wear and tear. However, over time, the discs can lose their ability to cushion the spine, leading to pain and stiffness. In some cases, the discs may even rupture, leading to serious problems. Degenerative disc disease is most common in people over the age of 40, and it is more likely to occur in people who have a family history of the condition.

Facet Joint Syndrome

Facet joint syndrome is a condition that affects the joints in the spine. The facet joints are responsible for stabilizing the spine, and they can become damaged when they are overworked or stressed. This damage can lead to pain, inflammation, and stiffness in the joints. In severe cases, the joints may fuse, which can cause immobility.

Herniated or Bulging Discs

A herniated disc also called a slipped or ruptured disc, is a condition in which the inner jelly-like material of the disc leaks out through a tear in the outer layer. This can cause spinal pain and other symptoms. A bulging disc occurs when the outer layer of the disc bulges outwards. However, the inner layer remains intact. Bulging discs can also cause pain and other symptoms. Herniated and bulging discs are both common causes of low back pain.

Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis is a condition that results when the protective cartilage on the ends of your bones wears down over time. Although osteoarthritis can damage any joint in your body, the disorder most often affects joints in your hands, knees, hips, or spine. Osteoarthritis gradually deteriorates the cartilage and underlying bone within the joint, causing pain and stiffness.

Sciatica

Sciatica is a common condition that affects many people. It is characterized by low back pain that radiates into the buttocks and down the legs. Sciatica can be caused by a variety of factors, including herniated discs, spinal stenosis, and pregnancy.

Scoliosis

Scoliosis is an orthopedic condition in which the spine curves to the side. The spine is made up of a series of bones called vertebrae, and in people with scoliosis, the vertebrae are not aligned properly. This can cause the spine to curve to the side, and in severe cases, the curve can be S-shaped or C-shaped. Scoliosis can occur at any age, but it is most common in adolescents. It is more common in girls than boys, and it is more common in people of certain races and ethnicities. There is no known cause of scoliosis, but there are several risk factors that have been associated with the condition. These include genetic factors, birth defects, and neuromuscular conditions. Scoliosis can be mild or severe, and it can progress over time or remain stable. Treatment for scoliosis depends on the severity of the condition. minor curves may not require treatment, while severe curves may require surgery to correct the deformity.

Spinal Stenosis

Spinal stenosis is a condition that occurs when the spaces in the spine narrow, putting pressure on the spinal cord and nerves. This can lead to pain, numbness, and weakness in the arms or legs. In some cases, it can also cause problems with bowel and bladder control. Spinal stenosis is most often found in people over the age of 50, and it is more common in women than in men. There are several different types of spinal stenosis, depending on which part of the spine is affected. For example, cervical stenosis occurs in the neck, and lumbar stenosis affects the lower back. The most common symptom of spinal stenosis is pain that gets worse with activity and improves with rest. Other symptoms may include numbness, tingling, weakness, or cramping in the affected area.

Spondylolisthesis

Spondylolisthesis is a condition in which a bone (vertebra) in the spine moves out of its proper position. This can occur when there is a weakness or injury to the spine. In most cases, spondylolisthesis occurs in the lower back (lumbar spine). It can also occur in the middle back (thoracic spine) or neck (cervical spine). Symptoms of spondylolisthesis vary depending on the location of the vertebra and how far it has moved out of position. They can range from mild to severe and may include back pain, leg pain, and nerve problems.

Vertebral Compression Fractures

Vertebral compression fractures (VCFs) are a common type of osteoporotic fracture. They occur when the vertebrae, or bones of the spine, collapse due to weakened bone. This can happen suddenly, due to a fall or trauma, or it can happen slowly over time. VCFs commonly occur in the middle and lower back, and can lead to pain, deformity, and loss of height.

What Back Pain Treatments Do You Offer?

Our team usually begins treatment of back pain with conservative options. These typically include anti-inflammatory medication, activity modification, and physical therapy. If you don’t feel any back pain relief, we may request advanced imaging and proceed with interventional procedures, which may include:

Epidural Steroid Injections

Epidural steroid injections (ESIs) are a common treatment option for many forms of lower back pain and leg pain. They have been used for over 50 years to provide relief for a variety of conditions. ESIs are typically performed as a day procedure, with the patient returning home the same day. The procedure involves injecting a long-acting steroid medication into the epidural space, which is the area around the spinal cord. The medication helps to reduce inflammation and swelling in the affected area, providing relief from pain. In most cases, ESIs are effective in reducing pain and improving function.

Facet Joint Injections

Facet joint injections are a common treatment for back pain. The facet joints are the small joints that connect the vertebrae in the spine. These joints can become irritated or inflamed, causing pain. Facet joint injections are used to help relieve this pain by delivering medication directly to the facet joints. The injection may be given with an anesthetic to help immediately relieve pain. It may also contain a steroid to help reduce inflammation. Facet joint injections are usually performed on an outpatient basis and take only a few minutes to complete.

Intracept® Procedure

The Intracept® Procedure is a minimally-invasive treatment option for chronic lower back pain. Developed by board-certified surgeons, the procedure is designed to target and destroy the root cause of pain: the medial branch nerves. These nerves are responsible for sending pain signals from the facet joints to the brain. The Intracept® Procedure is performed using a specialized radiofrequency device that heats up and destroys the targeted nerves with pinpoint accuracy. This results in significant long-term pain relief, without damaging nearby tissue or requiring the implantation of any artificial devices. The procedure can be performed as an outpatient procedure, and most patients report immediate relief from their back pain.

Ketamine Infusions

Ketamine infusions can provide significant relief for patients who suffer from chronic pain. Ketamine is a strong analgesic that works by blocking pain receptors in the brain. When administered through an IV, it can rapidly relieve pain without the need for addictive narcotics. In addition, ketamine is effective in treating a variety of other conditions, including depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder. For patients with back pain, ketamine infusions can provide much-needed relief and allow them to return to their everyday activities.

mild® Procedure

The mild® Procedure is a minimally invasive treatment for chronic lower back pain. The procedure addresses a major root cause of lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) by removing excess ligament tissue to restore space in the spinal canal. Unlike traditional invasive spine surgery, which involves large incisions and a long recovery period, the mild® Procedure can be performed through a small incision in the lower back. This allows patients to experience significantly less pain and a shorter recovery time.

Nerve Blocks

Nerve blocks are a type of regional anesthesia that can be used to relieve pain in a specific area of the body. They work by interrupting the flow of pain signals from the nerves to the brain. Nerve blocks can be used to treat a variety of conditions, including migraines, herniated discs, and arthritis. The procedure is typically performed using local anesthesia, meaning that the patient will remain awake during the procedure. Nerve blocks can provide significant relief from pain, and they are often used as a treatment for chronic pain conditions.

Radiofrequency Ablation

Radiofrequency ablation is a procedure that uses high-frequency radio waves to heat and destroy nerve tissue. It is typically used to treat pain that originates from the nerves, such as back pain or nerve pain associated with conditions like arthritis. The procedure is relatively simple and can be performed on an outpatient basis. First, the area to be treated is numbed with a local anesthetic. Then, a small needle is inserted into the target nerve and radiofrequency waves are passed through the needle to destroy the nerve tissue. The entire process takes about 30 minutes and most patients experience significant pain relief within a few days.

Spinal Cord Stimulation

Spinal cord stimulation is a treatment that delivers electrical impulses to the spinal cord to help relieve back pain. It is most often used for people who have chronic pain that has not been relieved by other treatments, such as physical therapy, medication, interventional procedures, and surgery. The electrical impulses block the pain signals from reaching the brain, which can help to reduce or eliminate the pain. In addition, spinal cord stimulation can also help to improve function and quality of life. The treatment is typically done on an outpatient basis, and most people report good results with minimal side effects.

Vertiflex™ Procedure

The Vertiflex™ Procedure is a minimally invasive option for treating symptomatic lumbar spinal stenosis. It is performed using small implants to provide support for the vertebrae and decompresses the nerves. The procedure can be performed as an outpatient procedure, and patients typically experience a significant reduction in back pain and improved mobility following the procedure. For patients with severe back pain that has not responded to other treatment options, the Vertiflex™ Procedure may be an ideal option.

Are You Orthopedic Spine Physicians, and Do You Offer Invasive Spine Surgery?

We are not orthopedic spine doctors and do not offer invasive spine surgery. We are a team of minimally invasive spine physicians dedicated to providing our patients with the best treatments available. We take pride in providing individualized, evidence-based care for each patient. Our doctors assess patients' medical history and condition thoroughly before recommending procedures or treatments, always considering the least invasive procedure whenever possible.

Do You Offer Minimally Invasive Spine Procedures?

Yes. Minimally invasive therapies are becoming increasingly popular for the treatment of low back pain. These therapies involve minimal incisions and, in some cases, can be done using minimally invasive techniques, such as steroid injections, nerve blocks, and indirect lumbar decompression. In addition to being less invasive, minimally invasive therapies often result in less pain and faster recovery times than traditional surgery. As a result, they are an appealing option for patients who want to avoid the risks and side effects associated with invasive spine surgery.
