Pulsed Radiofrequency Ablation
Pulsed radiofrequency ablation is a specialized procedure that targets the source of pain by applying pulsed radiofrequency waves at a low temperature to interrupt the pain signals. This technique has worked as an alternative to thermal radiofrequency ablation for conditions where a lower temperature is preferred for treatment. Pulsed radiofrequency ablation is effective for treating difficult types of pain conditions that originate from either nerve damage or irritated nerves.
How It Helps
A pulsed radiofrequency ablation can help to treat radiculopathy, discogenic pain, dorsal root ganglion pain, and joint pain.
