Pharmacological treatments

They are the most common and is performed in the office. We use analgesics (anti-inflammatory and opioid derivatives) and other medications that produce analgesia by other mechanisms of action, such as antidepressants, anticonvulsants, antiarrhythmics, steroids and sympatholytic.

The combinations of drugs, multiple routes of administration (oral, iv, im, sc, epidural, spinal, transdermal) and various modes of administration (bolus, continuous infusion, on demand, PCA), are the most used.

Outpatient invasive procedures

Nerve blocks: are injections of anesthetic drugs, steroids and / or opiates. Are performed to relieve pain and / or determine if the origin is in a specific nerve root. Anesthetic drugs numb the nerves, steroids are potent anti-inflammatory drugs that reduce swelling, and opiates are potent analgesics. In some cases, nerve blocks may relieve pain for a long time, sometimes it is effectively a single nerve block, but in people with more complex pain disorders may take several sections.
