Radiofrequency Ablations

Are you tired of living with chronic pain that limits your daily activities and quality of life? At SOLUTIONS Pain & Spine, we offer state-of-the-art Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) procedures to effectively manage and alleviate your pain, allowing you to regain control and enjoy a more active lifestyle.


What is Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA)?

Radiofrequency Ablation, also known as Radiofrequency Neurotomy or Rhizotomy, is a minimally invasive procedure that uses thermal energy to disrupt pain signals from specific nerves. By applying heat generated from radiofrequency waves, the targeted nerves responsible for transmitting pain are effectively disabled, providing long-lasting relief.


Conditions Treated by Radiofrequency Ablations

Radiofrequency Ablations are commonly used to manage chronic pain associated with various conditions, including:

Facet joint pain: RFA can be applied to the nerves supplying the facet joints in the spine, which are a common source of chronic back or neck pain.

Sacroiliac joint pain: RFA can provide relief for patients experiencing chronic pain originating from the sacroiliac joint, located at the base of the spine.

Peripheral nerve pain: RFA can be used to treat conditions such as chronic regional pain syndrome (CRPS), occipital neuralgia, and intercostal neuralgia.

Arthritis pain: RFA can effectively manage pain caused by degenerative joint conditions, such as osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis.


The Radiofrequency Ablation Process at SOLUTIONS Pain & Spine

At SOLUTIONS Pain & Spine, we prioritize your comfort and well-being throughout the entire treatment process:

Initial evaluation: Our experienced medical team will conduct a comprehensive evaluation, including a review of your medical history, physical examination, and diagnostic tests to determine if Radiofrequency Ablation is an appropriate treatment option for you.

Pre-procedure consultation: We will explain the procedure in detail, answer any questions you may have, and provide you with instructions to prepare for the RFA procedure.

RFA procedure: You will be positioned comfortably, and the treatment area will be numbed using a local anesthetic. Our skilled specialists will use advanced imaging guidance to precisely place the radiofrequency electrodes near the targeted nerves. Thermal energy is then applied to disrupt the pain signals.

Recovery and follow-up: Following the procedure, you will be monitored for a short period before being discharged. We will provide you with post-procedure instructions and schedule any necessary follow-up appointments to assess your progress and address any concerns.
