Interventional Pain Medicine Q & A

What is interventional pain medicine?

Interventional pain medicine primarily focuses on non-operative pain management treatments. If you experience chronic pain, finding a management strategy can help you sleep better and have more energy to get through the day. 

Lynx Healthcare starts every interventional pain medicine course of treatment with a comprehensive physical evaluation and a discussion of your medical and family history. They might perform tests to confirm your diagnosis or get an idea of the extent of your condition’s effects on your body. 

Effective interventional pain medicine can help you postpone surgery or avoid it altogether. While surgery is often effective for treating some types of chronic pain, many people would rather avoid it because of long recovery times, hospital stays, scarring, and other factors that make it more complicated than non-operative treatments. 

What can interventional pain medicine treat?

The Lynx Healthcare team uses interventional pain medicine to treat many types of pain and various conditions that cause chronic pain. You should consider booking an interventional pain medicine consultation if you have any of the following:

  • Myofascial pain 
  • Cancer pain
