Interventional Spine Care
Interventional spine care is the minimally-invasive, nonsurgical treatment of painful spine injuries or disorders. While pain management options are available, the spine care experts at Texas Orthopedic Hospital understand that interventional care is a different field of medicine than pain management.
Pain management procedures are often repeated, even if patients do not experience relief. At the Spinal Diagnostic and Treatment Center at Texas Orthopedic Hospital, our experts focus on obtaining an exact diagnosis first, which then results in a treatment plan that is precise and effective.
For example, patients diagnosed with arthritic or degenerated discs by our specialists at SpineCare Consultants have the opportunity to undergo targeted interventional treatment, resulting in pain relief that lasts for a year or more.
Interventional spine care procedures at the Spinal Diagnostic and Treatment Center include:
- Epidural steroid injections
- Facet joint injections
- Radiofrequency neurotomy
- Spinal cord stimulation
- Sympathetic, medial branch, and stellate ganglion blocks
Many of our patients at Texas Orthopedic Hospital who seek interventional spine care are those who have experienced chronic pain over the period of several weeks, months, or longer. However, not all chronic pain is spine related and could be coming from a different source. To ensure that an interventional spine care treatment is right for you, a spine specialist will use an evidence-based approach to diagnose your pain and decide the best form of treatment.

- Muscle spasms that may happen immediately or after 24 hours since the trauma has happened
- Localized pain, tenderness, stiffness, or paralysis
- Feelings of numbness or a tingling sensation
Some general back pain can subside on its own, but if the pain does not go away after 1-2 weeks, you should consider speaking to one of our specialists at Texas Orthopedic Hospital about general spine care or specialized spine treatment.
