Radio Frequency Ablation
What is Radio Frequency Ablation?
Radiofrequency ablation is a unique procedure that can be effective at reducing pain. Radio waves are used to create an electrical current, which in turn increases the heat around a small area of nerve tissue. This in turn minimizes the pain signals that emanate from that area.
Radiofrequency ablation has been shown to be effective in treating chronic neck pain, lower back pain, as well as the pain that comes from joint degeneration and from arthritis.
