Benefits of Interventional Pain Management

Benefits of Interventional Pain Management

Interventional pain management is a multidisciplinary approach to chronic pain that works to relieve your pain and reduce your symptoms. Bonus: It does all that without a prescription or a scalpel. 

Sounds too good to be true? Many think so and spend years spinning their wheels trying to find a treatment that actually works. 

That’s why Dr. David Wu and our team at CurePain want to bring awareness to the many benefits of interventional pain management, so you can get genuine pain relief without sacrificing your overall health. 

More options

One of the most frustrating things about living with (and trying to treat) chronic pain, is that it can often seem as though medication or surgery are your only options. That’s not true when you turn to interventional pain management. 

This approach to pain sets you free from the constraints of traditional treatments and allows you to choose from several noninvasive and minimally invasive options:

Dr. Wu uses these treatments to address the many causes of chronic pain, including sciatica, headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome, herniated discs, as well as causes of neck, back, and joint pain. He takes into account your entire health history before recommending a treatment plan. 

Fewer side effects and risks

There’s no way around it: Surgery and prescription medication both come with a long list of side effects. Interventional pain management, however, gives you all the benefits of pain relief without the drawbacks of harmful side effects. 

Relief that lasts

Interventional pain management provides quick and lasting pain relief. 

An epidural injection, for example, offers almost immediate relief that can last for months. Similarly, spinal cord stimulation can stop pain in its tracks for years. 

No need for opioids

The opioid epidemic is a pervasive problem in our country. Unfortunately, highly addictive pain medication is still the go-to treatment for pain. When you choose interventional pain management, you choose a healthier, safer way to live pain-free. 

Efficient treatment

Traditional pain treatments don’t always get to the source of your pain, but rather mask the pain for a while. Interventional pain management treatments work differently. For example, we often use non- and minimally invasive techniques, such as radiofrequency therapy and physical therapy, to address the root cause of your pain so you can resolve it for good.

Dr. Wu can help you find relief from pain through injections and therapies that directly target your pain. You’ll never have to sacrifice your daily routine — or your overall health — for the sake of pain management.
