Chronic Pain Relief
Radiofrequency ablation is a type of medical treatment that uses heat to reduce pain in certain parts of your body. This treatment is often used for people who have chronic pain, like back or neck pain, and have not found relief from other treatments.
The procedure involves a doctor numbing your skin with a small needle and then inserting a special needle called a probe into the area where you are experiencing pain. The probe uses radiofrequency energy to create heat that can destroy the small nerves that transmit pain signals.
After the procedure, you may feel some temporary numbness or discomfort in the area. However, many people experience significant and long-lasting relief from their pain.
It’s important to note that this procedure should only be done under the guidance of a medical professional and after careful consideration of your individual health needs.
