Could Radiofrequency Ablation Help Your Neck Pain?
Ablation therapy is an effective treatment option for neck pain and it could be recommended by a spinal doctor at Spine Institute of North America. This treatment is effective on pain and spasms in both the neck and shoulder. Radiofrequency ablation works by using a radio wave to heat up the nerve and reducing its ability to sense the pain. The doctor will perform tests to ensure that only the nerves creating the pain sensation are targeted by the ablation therapy.
There are numerous advantages to ablation therapy, including the ability of the doctor to target specific areas that are causing shoulder and neck pain. Our spinal doctors may recommend radiofrequency ablation if you’ve responded well to cervical epidural injections. This is a safe procedure with few chances for complications and a high chance of effective pain reduction.
