Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) is a common non-surgical procedure used to successfully treat those suffering from back pain, neck pain, muscle pain, or other discomforts.
Guided by imaging techniques, the doctor inserts a thin needle through the skin and into the affected nerve. High-frequency electrical energy delivered through this needle heats up and destroys a small area of nerve tissue, thereby decreasing pain signals from the effect area. Some common advantages of having RFA performed are high success rate, same day procedure and a short recovery time.
