RFA (Radiofrequency Ablations)

Radiofrequency ablation (RFA), also known as radiofrequency neurotomy, uses radio waves to generate electricity to heat a small area of the nerve. Heat damages this nerve, preventing it from sending pain signals to the brain. RFA can provide long-term relief, especially for patients with chronic pain such as back, neck and joint pain

 

Facet joints are a pair of small joints between the vertebrae of the spine. These joints support your spine and allow your back to move, such as stretching and bending. The sacroiliac joint is located near the base of the spine, just above the bones. Nerves connected to these joints send pain signals from the spine to the brain

 

Using radiofrequency ablation to target the medial nerve of the facet joint or the medial branch of the sacroiliac joint can reduce pain.

The purpose of radiofrequency ablation is to:

  • Stop or reduce pain.
  • Improved performance.
  • Reduce the amount of antibiotics you take.
  • Avoid or postpone surgery.
