Interventional therapy: Certain types of pain may be relieved with interventional therapies. These therapies use techniques such as injections, nerve blocks, and nerve freezing to treat the source of the pain. This treatment does not work for everyone and they work best when they are used along with other types of treatment, including counselling and physical therapy. A 50% reduction in pain from interventional therapy is considered successful.
Interventional Pain Management options at Women’s College Hospital include ultrasound or fluoroscopic guided nerve blocks and radiofrequency ablation.
