Treatment of intractable chronic pain employs, nerve block, peripheral nerve stimulation, phototherapy, and drug therapy such as opioid and analgesia adjuvant. We also employ multi disciplinary approach with internal medicine, psychiatry and other related fields. In addition, in a portion of intractable chronic back pain, the pain relief is obtained by interventional approaches such as adhesionlysis and the neuroplasty with epiduroscopy as well as spinal cord stimulation therapy.
