Radiofrequency Ablation for Pain Management
Who Can Radiofrequency Treatment Help?
If chronic back, neck, or joint pain has made simple tasks like carrying groceries arduous, made sleeping through the night a rarity, or keeps you from enjoying activities you love like golf, jogging or even walking the dog, our radiofrequency treatment should give you hope. By attacking pain at its source, this non-invasive, outpatient procedure has been proven to eliminate or significantly reduce chronic pain for months, and in some cases, years.
How Does Radiofrequency Stop Pain at Its Source?
Radiofrequency ablation, also known as rhizotomy or neurotomy has been used as a pain treatment for more than 25 years. But, recent advances in our understanding of the nervous system have helped make the treatment remarkably easy on the patient while delivering consistent and long-lasting pain relief.
Guided by X-ray imaging, the doctor uses a thin cannula to deliver radiant energy directly to the spinal nerve endings sourcing the pain. The pathways are heated to a temperature that disables the transmission of pain signals for months without damaging nerves that control movement, balance or normal sensation.
