If your nerves are causing frequent or severe pain, radiofrequency ablation treatments at Advanced Interventional Pain Clinic may be an effective solution. We offer this treatment to patients in Orlando, Longwood and Ocoee, FL.
What is Radiofrequency Ablation?
Radiofrequency ablation is an advanced pain management technique that uses radiofrequency energy to inflict controlled damage on a nerve or group of nerves. The nerves are slowly heated until they are longer able to send pain signals to the brain. At this point, the patient may experience long-lasting results that provide relief from a range of conditions.
What is Radiofrequency Ablation Used to Treat?
Radiofrequency ablation is often used to treat arthritis pain, back pain and neck pain. These conditions cause recurring pain due to damage or pressure on the nerves. By using radiofrequency ablation to block the signals from these nerves, patients can enjoy immediate and lasting relief.
What Can I Expect from Radiofrequency Ablation?
During radiofrequency ablation treatment, a small needle is inserted into the area where pain is felt. Then, radiofrequency energy is carefully administered to heat and damage the nerves. At this point, the nerves will no longer be able to emit pain signals, and the treatment will be complete. You can expect relief that lasts for at least a few months, as the nerves will not be able to transmit pain signals until they heal. During your initial visit with one of our doctors, we will determine the best approach for your radiofrequency ablation treatment and tell you what you can expect from your treatment.
