The phrase “interventional pain management” includes the diagnosis and treatment of pain and related disorders by applying techniques that directly interact with the structures mediating the pain.
Interventional pain management is different from other types of pain management in that it incorporates “combination therapy”. This means that each patient will be treated according to their condition and situation and will not just be treated with a prescription
Interventions are used to treat the pain at the site and determine what is causing the pain. An intervention may be anything from medications, to therapy, to injections, to surgery.
Unfortunately, medical insurance does not cover those services.
When you come to your first appointment please be 15 minutes early and bring the following:
Any diagnostic reports (MRI, CT Scan, X-Rays) If you have the films bring them too. We will return them to you.
Insurance cards and Photo ID
The name and number of your primary care physician and the referring physician if you have one.
If we are treating your injury due to an auto accident or injury that occurred at work please bring your claim number, adjuster’s name and phone number, attorney’s name and phone number, and any worker’s comp or auto insurance information.
You will not receive an injection at your first appointment. The purpose of your first appointment is to assess your medical history, perform a physical exam of your condition, and decide the plan of treatment best for you. If an injection is necessary, you will be given information and one will be scheduled for you.
