Non-Operative Treatment Q & A

What is non-operative treatment?

Non-operative treatment at Interventional Pain Consultants uses non-surgical solutions to reduce pain. Some of the many benefits associated with non-operative treatments include:

  • Reduced pain
  • Faster healing
  • No incisions
  • No downtime
  • Cost savings
  • Pain prevention 

The team at Interventional Pain Consultants recommends non-operative treatments whenever possible, but they also provide surgical solutions as needed to help you achieve the best outcome. 

Treatment can reduce joint pain, knee pain, back and neck pain, arthritis discomfort, migraines, neuropathy, and automobile, sports, or work-related injuries to give you a better quality of life.

Which non-operative treatment is right for me?

To find out which non-operative, pain-relieving treatment is the best option, your pain specialist reviews your symptoms and medical history. They complete a physical exam and might recommend you undergo blood tests, MRIs, CT scans, X-rays, or ultrasounds.

What are my non-operative treatment options?

Some of the many non-operative treatments available at Interventional Pain Consultants include:

Home remedies

Things you can do at home to relieve pain include rest, ice, compression, and elevation (RICE). Rest the painful areas of your body and apply heat or cold packs to reduce inflammation. 

Epidural steroid injections

During steroid injection procedures, your pain specialist injects an anesthetic and steroid into the epidural space around your spinal cord to reduce inflammation and ease discomfort.

Facet joint injections

Facet joints around your spine connect backbones to each other. During facet joint injections, your specialist inserts pain-relieving medicine directly into these joints.

Nerve blocks

Nerve blocks are injections your provider uses to stop pain signal transmission by targeted nerves, which reduces inflammation and discomfort.

Trigger point injections

During trigger point injections, your pain specialist injects a steroid and an anesthetic into painful muscle knots to relax them and alleviate pain.

Regenerative medicine

Revolutionary regenerative medicine treatments available at Interventional Pain Consultants include stem cell and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections. Both stem cells and PRP enhance your body’s natural healing response by stimulating cell regeneration. 

Physical therapy

Interventional Pain Consultants can refer out for physical therapy services to optimize the effectiveness of non-operative treatments.
