Interventional Pain Management relies on controlling pain and improving function with the use of injections that target an inflamed area or by blocking pain signals from damaged nerves.
In general, we can precisely target any damaged muscle, ligament, tendon, nerve, or joint.
Targeted and injected steroids have several advantages. When you take an oral steroid, or have it injected into the muscle of your hip or buttocks, only 0.5% or less of the medicine will actually get to the spot that is painful. The rest circulates in your blood stream potentially causing many side effects.
