Radiofrequency Ablation for spine

Long-lasting relief from chronic pain

  • Essex Street

Treatment Details

Radiofrequency Ablation — RFA is a non-invasive pain control technique designed to provide patients with long-lasting relief from chronic pain. Our doctors a use RFA to help those with chronic low back & neck pain related to the degeneration of joints from arthritis. This non-surgical procedure uses radiofrequency waves to destroy nerve fibers; thus, interrupting the transmission of pain signals before they reach the brain. The radiofrequency waves accomplish this by ablating (i.e., burning) the targeted nerve fibers. Once nerve fiber ablation is complete, pain signal transmission to the brain from the targeted nerve fiber is essentially eliminated. If you suffer from recurrent pain and have previously found relief with nerve block injections, you may be a good candidate for Radiofrequency Rhizotomy because this procedure is 70 to 80 percent effective for patients who have previously found relief following a nerve block. Individuals who decide to have RFA receive a variety of benefits, including: - immediate relief from pain (for some); - improved function; - no need for surgical intervention; - a reduction in their dependence on pain medication; - very little recovery time, if any; and - a quick return to work or school (24 to 72 hours).
