What is Interventional Pain Management?

Along with medications, there are interventional techniques to block or manage pain.  These procedures require experience and proper patient selection to insure safety for the patient and maximize favorable outcomes.  

Fluoroscopy is critical in order to minimize risk and identify proper needle placement.  Procedures include:

  • cervical and lumbar epidurals
  • facet injections and ablations 
  • SI joint injections
  • discography

Indications for these procedures are based upon diagnostic studies, patient history, and physical examination findings.

  • 62 year old female, Wabash, IN

    Very kind and considerate. Appointments are on time. Staff, Julie and Dr. Reecer are very compassionate. I have been seeing them for pain management services for almost seven years. I plan to continue with them for chronic issues due to a car crash. I certainly do not desire to change from them to any other M.D.  I believe they have provided me with the best possible treatment. Extremely knowledgable and current with meds and other treatments.

    Excellent care. I am terrified of needles and receive steroid injections to my left lower back. The staff has always eased my fears during treatments. I feel comfortable when talking about my personal health issues with my P.A. Fort Wayne Physical Medicine has helped me with my pain control in a safe and healthy manner.
