Interventional Pain Management

For sufferers of chronic pain, relief can seem like an unobtainable goal when pain medications and physical rehabilitation fail to provide effective pain control. If you are one such individual and have exhausted the standard avenues of treatment, there is still hope. Interventional pain management, a minimally invasive approach to pain control, deploys state-of-the-art treatment strategies to diminish discomfort and restore quality of life. Used as both a diagnostic and treatment tool, advanced interventional pain management services are varied and can range from injections and medial branch blocks to nerve stimulators and radiofrequency procedures. Regardless of the interventional pain technique chosen, the end goal remains the same: that of interrupting the transmission of pain signals to decrease the level of discomfort experienced without the need for invasive surgery or the reliance on potent prescription medications.

Dr. Sanchez has specialized in the diagnosis of pain conditions and the administration of advanced interventional pain management tactics. For over 40 years   Most procedures can be performed on an out-patient basis at our state-of-the-art pain management center conveniently located in Exeter, Newington and Stratham NH.
