Most patients attending a pain clinic would have had conservative management. Interventional pain management is a field of pain management that is applied when conservative, medical management has not succeeded to provide pain relief, or prior to surgery.

There are several different interventions and procedures that are used for chronic pain management. The best way to approach pain will vary depending on your symptoms and proper diagnostics. Many patients have found interventional pain treatment is most effective as an alternative to surgical interventions.
