Radiofrequency ablation is an effective way to block pain signals from traveling between your brain and spinal cord. This minimally invasive procedure is an effective way to reduce neck, back and sacroiliac joint pain.
This treatment delivers a pulse of radiofrequency waves into a damaged or malfunctioning nerve, creating a small, precise burn designed to block pain signals to your brain. This procedure is particularly effective for patients that respond well to nerve block injections.
Treatments are performed under local anesthesia and take between 15 and 45 minutes depending on the number of nerves being treated. Patients are able to resume normal activities in as little as 24 hours.
This is a long-term, minimally-invasive treatment for neurological pain. Quick and with little recovery time, it can reduce your need for surgery or pain medication.
