Chronic Pain Q & A

What are the causes of chronic pain?

What should I expect at an appointment with an interventional pain management specialist?

Dr. Arthur helps you find ways to manage your chronic pain while avoiding the unpleasant side effects and possible addictive qualities of opiods. He seeks to identify the origin of your pain and treat it at its source, rather than just help you relieve the symptoms.

When you first consult with Dr. Arthur, he’ll review your complete medical history and symptoms. He also completes a thorough physical exam that may involve imaging tests or blood work. He’ll ask specific questions about your pain, specifically what aggravates it and its quality.

Gathering this information helps Dr. Arthur make an informed diagnosis and enables him to devise a customized treatment plan.

How does an interventional pain management specialist address chronic pain?

Dr. Arthur uses a vast array of strategies to provide the most relief possible. He may offer nerve block injections to diagnose and treat the source of your pain. This may be followed by nerve ablation procedures or nerve stimulation procedures to control your symptoms

A common injection is the epidural nerve root steroid injection in your spine. This injection sends relief directly to the inflamed nerve root. Facet joint injections, single root nerve blocks, and sacroiliac joint injections are other common therapies.

Electrical stimulation, physical therapy, minimally invasive surgeries, and hot and cold therapies are other available treatments for pain. A new minimally invasive procedure known as Superion Interspinous Spacers is available for the condition of lumbar spinal stenosis.
