What Is Radiofrequency Ablation?

Radiofrequency ablation, also called radiofrequency neurotomy, is a minimally invasive procedure that uses radio waves to treat various conditions, such as chronic neck and back pain and venous insufficiency, and shrink the size of benign and malignant tumors.

The radio waves produced in radiofrequency ablation create heat that temporarily disconnects the nerves in the affected area, preventing it from directing pain signals to your brain. We use radiofrequency ablation treatment in Long Beach, Brooklyn, Hempstead, and Plainview, NY, to relieve people with chronic neck pain, lower back pain, and arthritic joints.

Who Needs Radiofrequency Ablation?

Radiofrequency ablation is not for everyone. Hence, you need to discuss your condition with your doctor to determine the best pain management treatment. Our pain management doctors in Long Beach, Brooklyn, Hempstead, and Plainview, NY, offer a variety of pain management treatments for treating a range of pain conditions.

However, we use RFA for individuals who are experiencing:

  • Chronic pain that doesn’t respond to other treatments
  • Pain relief after receiving a nerve block injection

Nonetheless, if you have a bleeding problem or an infection or if you’re pregnant, radiofrequency ablation may not be the proper pain management treatment for you.

How does Radiofrequency Ablation Work?

According to research found in the National Library of Medicine, radiofrequency ablation can be a highly successful treatment for chronic neck and back pain. It involves using a thin needle to apply heat to the affected nerves. This will inhibit the transmission of pain signals from that specific nerve to the brain.

Our pain management doctors will insert the needle through the skin while using imaging to guide the needle to the correct nerve. Here are a few things to expect before, during, and after the procedure:

What to Expect Before the Procedure

First, the doctor will inquire about your pain and your medical and medication history. Afterward, an X-ray will be performed to determine the extent of your injury and rule out other pain causes, if any.

Our pain management doctors in Long Beach will also perform a diagnostic block test to ascertain your pain level and determine if it provides significant relief. If the nerve block works effectively, then an RFA will be considered to relieve long-term pain.

What to Expect During the Procedure

During the procedure, our doctors will numb the area of your skin where the needle will be inserted to help numb the area. Afterward, a thin needle will be inserted in the area where you feel pain. Upon discovering the exact location, local anesthesia is injected through the needle to numb the area.

Next, a radiofrequency current is sent through the needle to heat the targeted nerve. The heat will prevent the nerve from sending pain signals to your brain. This procedure may take from 15 minutes to 2 hours to complete, depending on the number of treatments done or the treatment location.

What to Expect After the Procedure

You’ll be allowed to go home shortly after the procedure is completed. However, either a member of your family or a friend must drive. It would help if you didn’t do anything strenuous for 24 hours after the procedure. The only activity we recommend is rest.

You can return to your normal activities after a day or two of rest, including bathing. However, you may still feel pain, soreness, or muscle spasms in the treatment area for a few days, for which we will provide some medications to help with the pain.
