Recommended for patients who can no longer control chronic or severe pain with medications or non-surgical treatments, Interventional pain procedures are pain-blocking and inflammation-reducing techniques with the goal of functional improvement and regained quality of life.
Dr. Lilia Vinarsky is board certified in PM&R and interventional pain medicine. Interventional pain management uses minimally invasive medical procedures to interrupt the nervous system’s transmission of pain-filled messages from the nerve endings to the brain, thereby stopping pain caused by:
Interventional Pain Procedures
Interventional pain procedures include:
Epidural Steroid Injection: a minimally invasive procedure to relieve neck, arm, back, and leg pain caused by inflamed spinal nerves due to spinal stenosis, disc herniation, or degenerative disc disease.
Trigger Point Injection (TPI): a procedure used to treat painful areas of muscle that contain trigger points, or knots of muscle that form and irritate the nerves around them causing pain.
Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) or Rhizotomy or A facet ablation: a minimally invasive surgical procedure that destroys inflamed nerve roots that carry pain signals to the brain.
Facet Injections and Block: Facet blocks are done to relieve pain coming from the facet joints, the joints in the spine located in the back aspect of the spine.
Peripheral Nerve Field Stimulation: Uses electrical leads placed as close to the source of pain as possible to effectively treat pain in the lower back and neck, typically caused by arthritis.
Nerve Root Block: An injection of either a lidocaine derivative, steroid, or both placed where the nerve root exits the spinal canal to treat an inflamed or irritated nerve root.
