Interventional Pain Management

Interventional Treatment Options Available from Crouse Medical Practice in Syracuse NY

Chronic and acute pain can greatly affect the quality of life. When pain is strong enough to interfere with daily activities and when other treatments have not been successful, Interventional Pain Management can help you reduce pain and get you back to your life. 

Interventional pain management is a discipline which utilizes a vast array of therapies to help diagnose, reduce, and if possible, completely relieve a person’s pain.  Therapies might include nerve blocks, electrostimulation, surgery, or implantable drug delivery systems to reduce pain.

At Crouse Interventional Pain Management, we use a conservative non-narcotic approach to treating pain. We look at the patient as a whole person, rather than just their pain and we offer cutting-edge treatment options along with holistic therapies. We start with a thorough clinical examination, before we make any treatment plan.  When the source of pain is precisely identified, it is often possible to better adjust the usual conservative treatment options such as medications, physical therapy, and other modalities to provide the best possible care for early resolution of pain. We closely monitor each patient’s progress and make adjustments as necessary to achieve the goal of pain control.
