What is Interventional Pain Management?   

Interventional Pain Management is a medical specialty devoted to the treatment of pain disorders using minimally invasive techniques including; steroid injections, physical therapy, spinal cord stimulators, intrathecal infusion pumps and nerve blocks independently or with other treatments.  Medications may also be used for pain management if appropriate. Doctors who manage pain are frequently anesthesiologists who have done additional training to become an expert in treating pain.  Patients with back and neck pain represent the majority of patients in this specialty.

What is Sciatic Pain?                                        

Sciatic pain generally starts in the buttocks and runs down the thigh and may even continue all the way to the foot.  Pain may also be present in the lower back.  Sciatic pain is caused by irritation to the nerve roots connecting to the sciatic nerve, most commonly caused by herniated or bulging lumbar intervertebral disks.  Typically no specific trauma is to blame.  Simple activity such as bending or twisting may bring on this pain.  Sciatic pain most commonly occurs in people 30 to 50 years of age; the prime age is 40 years old.
