Interventional therapy can alleviate chronic pain by blocking the transmission of pain signals to the brain. Interventional pain management involves special procedures such as an injection of local anesthetic, steroid, or narcotic around nerves, tendons, joints or muscles, nerve blocks and spinal cord stimulation to treat and manage pain. In some cases, of extreme pain, drugs are often given in smaller doses through the catheter directly into the spinal cord. Even though interventional procedures for treating pain seem simple, extreme care should be taken when conducting these procedures. These procedures should be performed by well-trained and experienced specialists. Dr. Carlson is fellowship trained in Interventional Pain procedures.
