Ultrasound application in interventional pain medicine has made tremendous growth in recent years. Ultrasound not only avoids radiation exposure but also allows real-time visualization of the drug delivery and avoids damage to the surrounding structures. It also ensures accurate delivery of medication; thus improves efficacy and outcome. Furthermore, ultrasound is a valuable tool for pain physicians in confirming the diagnosis of many musculoskeletal pain conditions and entrapment neuropathies in the clinic. Its role in various aspects of chronic pain like spinal pain, musculoskeletal pain and nerve-related pain are discussed below.
