About Pain

Pain is a subjective experience and it has various causes. Using interventional minimally invasive techniques has gradually been incorporated among treatment procedures for patients suffering from chronic pain. Interventional techniques focus on precision in localization of the source of the pain. A good diagnostic choice of patients increases the success ratio of the treatment procedures.

The main goals of interventional pain treatment are:

PAIN RELIEF

For everyone, at least once in a lifetime, there is a moment when they are in pain. If treated improperly, pain can lead to both physical and mental issues, which affect both the patients and their families. For a patient suffering from chronic pain, its alleviation thanks to effective treatment based on precise diagnostics and therapy can prevent their feeling of isolation and can help them maintain a positive approach to life.

LESS MEDICATION

Excessive use or even abuse of pain medication in chronic treatment increases the death risk and creates other health issues. Minimal invasive procedures under radiological or ultrasound guidance aim at specifically diagnosing and treating pain while at the same time lowering the use of pain medication.

RETURNING TO LIFE

Chronic pain is caused by mutual interaction of various biological, social, psychological factors and other factors from the family environment. Patients may suffer from many types of pain, which rob them of living a full life. They become depressed or anxious, sometimes they even try to end their lives.

Being satisfied with one’s life brings positive thinking to everyday activities of every person. One of the most disturbing aspects of living with pain is emotional instability. The treatment aims at alleviating, reducing and controlling pain and improving the quality of the patient’s life.
