What Is Radiofrequency Ablation?

Radiofrequency ablation is a safe, effective, and minimally invasive procedure that alleviates back and neck pain. This treatment consists of a painless injection to the spine using high-quality electric current technology. These electric currents are shot into a small area of nerve tissue, causing it to heat up and stop it from sending pain signals to your brain, providing fast relief.

Bergen Pain Management prides itself on putting the comfort and needs of the patient above all else. That’s why this procedure is usually performed with a local anesthetic to numb the area of injection, as well as mild sedation to keep the patient awake but comfortable. It’s also performed under live X-ray, so Dr. Ragukonis can accurately inject the affected area and treat it on the spot without fear of damaging nerves or inciting other injuries.

How Does Radiofrequency Ablation Help?

Neck and back pain can seriously impact your day-to-day life, and you shouldn’t wait to get it treated. Radiofrequency ablation can be used to help patients experiencing chronic low-back and neck pain, as well as pain relating to arthritis. Radiofrequency ablation can also be used to treat knee, pelvic, and peripheral nerve pain.

The spine typically transmits signals to your brain which may process as pain, causing discomfort in your back or neck. This procedure will start to block those signals from being sent to your brain, providing immediate, long-lasting relief with little recovery time. Let Bergen Pain Management change your life and guide you on the journey towards a more comfortable lifestyle.
