Interventional Procedures Q & A

What are interventional procedures?

Interventional procedures help diagnose and treat chronic pain that hasn’t responded well to previous treatments. Most interventional procedures tame pain and reduce inflammation to help you lead a better quality of life. These techniques can restore function to degenerated joints and block pain signals from damaged nerves.

What conditions can interventional procedures treat?

Interventional procedures offer lasting pain relief for many different neuropathic and musculoskeletal conditions, including:

  • Arthritis 
  • Chronic pain from unhealed injuries
  • Postsurgical pain
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Myofascial pain
  • Joint pain 
  • Nerve damage
  • Peripheral neuropathy
  • Osteoarthritis 
  • Post-herpetic neuralgia 
  • Reflex sympathetic dystrophy 
  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Lumbar spine lower back pain
  • Cervical spine neck pain
  • Thoracic spine mid-back pain

Whether you experience severe chronic pain or persistent recurrent pain, interventional pain management can improve your nerve and joint function, restore function, and improve your mobility.

What are the different types of interventional procedures?

Colorado Clinic specializes in many different types of interventional procedures, such as:

Sphenopalatine ganglion block

The sphenopalatine ganglion nerve cells are located behind the nose and play a key role in headache pain. A sphenopalatine ganglion block can relieve pain from chronic headaches or migraines.

Cervical epidural steroid 

An epidural is a steroid that reduces inflammation and pain. When injected into the epidural space around the cervical spine, this treatment can relieve neck pain.

Cervical facet injections 

Facet injections can relieve joint pain by accelerating healing and reducing inflammation. If you have deteriorated joints in your neck from osteoarthritis or another degenerative condition, a cervical facet injection can minimize your pain and relieve stiffness in your neck.

Radiofrequency nerve ablation

Radiofrequency nerve ablation uses heat energy to prevent damaged nerves from emitting pain signals.

Intercostal nerve blocks 

An intercostal nerve block is one of the most effective treatments for post-shingles thoracic spine and chest pain.

Thoracic epidural steroid injections 

When injected into the thoracic spine, an epidural can minimize pain and inflammation in the mid-back.
