Concentrating on techniques rather than pain pathology, Spinal Interventions in Pain Management is focused purely on the spine. This practical handbook covers anatomy and imaging, how to choose patients, how to undertake procedures, and includes advice on potential pitfalls. Perfect reading for pain interventionalists and trainees before doing a procedure or before an exam, the book covers the most common spinal interventions for pain that pain specialists undertake, including epidurals, diagnostic facet interventions, the intra-articular injection of the sacroiliac joint and radiofrequency denervation, cervical, thoracic and lumbar discography, and neuromodulation (spinal cord stimulation and intrathecal drug delivery). Extensive illustrations, both x-rays and figures, make the book accessible and help to provide a clear understanding of the anatomy, which underpins spinal interventions.
