Thanks to advances in pain medicine, millions of people no longer have to live with the types of chronic pain that may have been untreatable 10 or 20 years ago.
Unlike acute pain that warns us that something is wrong in the body, chronic pain can last more than six months and can continue long after the cause has been treated or even healed.
Getting an accurate diagnosis and treatment for chronic pain is about more than bringing relief to the affected area.
As with all good medicine, proper diagnosis is key to finding the right treatment protocol. Technological advances in ultrasound and other imaging techniques have increased clinical efficacy in pain diagnosis.
Interventional pain management is a relatively new specialty dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of pain-related disorders.
Now new minimally invasive techniques are freeing millions of patients from debilitating suffering and helping them improve their health, well-being and quality of life.
