This may also include acupuncture, massage, pain psychology and rehab.

In brief: Diverse team.

In cooperation with your primary care physician (or another physician who may refer you to an interventional pain management physician), depending upon your particular problem, you may only need the interventionist.
However, case dependent, counselling, physical therapy, nursing, and other professionals may be called upon.
