There are a variety of interventional procedures that can be used in the treatment of pain. Each has specific characteristics and the procedures are classified accordingly. Some procedures can be used to treat more than one condition.
Interventional treatment for pain that has been diagnosed using either imaging or an interventional diagnostic procedure are directed at specific targets, such as the facet joint or sciatic nerve roots. Once a diagnosis is made these treatments are the logical next step in the management of pain.
