What is IPM

INTERVENTIONAL PAIN MANAGEMENT (IPM)

The goal of Interventional pain management is not only relief in pain but also to increase function, improve quality of life and reduce one’s sense of suffering.

Interventional Pain management is the branch of medicine employing an interdisciplinary approach to the relief of pain and improvement in the quality of life of those living with chronic pain. Due to the complexities involved in the treatment of chronic pain, pain medicine is recognized as a separate medical super specialty as Interventional Pain Management.

Not everyone is able or willing to take pain medication every day, and not everyone can or should have surgery for painful conditions.

Pain relief doesn’t always come in a bottle of pills. Pain can take many forms and relief is not a one-size fits all process. Interventional Pain Management explores beyond the boundaries of standard medical treatments (drugs and surgery) and describes the many other approaches that are available for pain relief.

In addition to the standard pain medications, and surgical repairs of specific problems, patients and their clinicians also have access to a wide range of non-drug/non-surgical treatments/procedures for pain.

Pain Relief without Drugs or Surgery compiles the latest information on a variety of non-drug/non-surgical pain-relieving treatments and their applications to a number of common types of pain ie Interventional Pain Management.
