We offer a variety of solutions for your chronic pain and one of those is our radiofrequency ablation, designed to relieve recurrent pain through a nonsurgical, minimally invasive procedure done in our office.
During the procedure, known as radiofrequency ablation or rhizotomy, the physician uses guided imaging to place a special needle directly on the nerve that is responsible for delivering the pain signal to your brain. The radiofrequency generator then delivers a heated current to the nerve through the needle, thereby disabling the nerve endings causing the pain.
This procedure can be used for many different pain complaints with the obvious difference being the specific nerve targeted for that specific pain. Examples include low back pain, neck pain, knee pain, headache, and many more.
Benefit: These procedures can provide pain relief for as long as six to 12 months and the procedure can be repeated as needed.
