Description

“Interventional spine” treatment is a fairly new term, coined by pain specialists referring to injection of or near the spine, usually involving local anesthetic or steroid. It is really a poor term, since no lay person knows what it means, and even professionals are confused. See: http://michaeloconnellmdnh.wordpress.com/2014/03/28/medical-intervention/

Intervention… “Interventional spine” treatment is a fairly new term, coined by pain specialists referring to injection of or near the spine, usually involving local anesthetic or steroid. It is really a poor term, since no lay person knows what it means, and even professionals are confused. For example, wouldn't a surgical laminectomy be considered an interventional spine treatment? Even the word interventional is awkward, since it implies that rather than sit on one's hands, a practitioner of some specialty, decides to ‘intervene.’ Why would this not include medication? That is intervening, or an attempt to do so. Physical therapy, isn't that a hands on intervention of sorts, possibly one of the more intervening of all interventions. intervention /in·ter·ven·tion/ (-ven´shun) 1. the act or fact of interfering so as to modify. 2. any measure whose purpose is to improve health or alter the course of disease. Aren't all practitioners, whether physicians, chiropractors, therapists (physical, psycho, massage), all interested in improving the status of an ailing patient? I would suggest the term be considered a redundancy which does not clarify but obfuscates and tends to diminish the huge accomplishments by providers who happen not to “drive needles.”
