Pain Treatment Methods
In some situations, interventional pain treatment techniques are used – this is the injection of drugs into certain pathological foci (pain generators), a destructive effect on neural structures.
For the most accurate impact on pathological lesions, the doctor can use various imaging methods: low-dose radiography, ultrasound, computed tomography.
Procedures are performed under local anesthesia, on an outpatient basis, are practically painless and do not require special training from the patient and a large number of tests. At the same time, to reduce the risk of possible complications, all invasive manipulations are performed under sterile conditions of an equipped operating room.
The definition of treatment tactics begins at the first meeting of the patient with the doctor of the Clinic for the treatment of pain after a thorough history and examination, analysis of x-ray and functional data.
