WHAT IS RADIOFREQUENCY ABLATION (RFA)?
This minimally invasive pain treatment uses electrical currents produced by radio waves to heat small areas of the affected nerve tissue, decreasing pain in that specific area. When the radiofrequency waves ablate or “burn” the nerve it essentially eliminates the transmission of pain signals from that nerve to the brain. Used to help patients with chronic low back and neck pain often caused by the degeneration of joints from arthritis. Benefits of radiofrequency ablation include avoiding surgery, immediate pain relief, and little to no recovery time so patients can get back to life sooner.
