Do you suffer from low back pain, sacroiliac joint pain, or hip pain that has failed to improve with time and/or conservative therapy? If so you may be a candidate for this quick and simple treatment option.
What is Radiofrequency?
Radiofrequency is a nonsurgical, minimally invasive procedure that uses heat to reduce or stop the transmission of pain. Radiofrequency waves ablate, or “burn,” the nerve that is causing the pain, essentially eliminating the transmission of pain signals to the brain.
What are the Benefits?
This procedure has been proven to treat pain of all kinds, ranging from neck, back, and hip pain to neuropathic pain. The relief from pain and related symptoms may last a year or longer. The overall benefits also include: avoid surgery, immediate pain relief, little to no recovery time, and decreased need for pain medications.
How Does it Work?
Radiofrequency therapy is a targeted procedure of precision that works by using radiofrequency technology (mild electrical current) to prevent nerves from transmitting painful signals.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
In most cases, a single treatment with radiofrequency ablation will last anywhere from 8 to 12 months.
When Will I Feel Better?
The positive effects of radiofrequency ablation can be felt as soon as 2 to 3 days after the treatment.
