Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA)
The New Wave in Orthopedic Care is RFA Treatment
If you have nagging or chronic pain in your back, neck, or joints and you typically respond well to steroids, then RFA may be for you. RFA treatment uses radio waves to target the affected area with heat. While it can be painful for a few days longer, relief from these treatments can last up to two times longer than that from steroid injections.
The Benefits of Radiofrequency Ablation Treatment
- Non invasive, with short recovery time
- Very low risk of complications
- Pain Relief for six-to-12-months, sometimes for years
- The least amount of trips to the doctor compared to surgery and shorter term injections
ClinTech is equipped with the latest RFA technology from CosmanRFA-Boston Scientific. If your cervical, lumbar, or sacro-iliac pain responds temporarily to steroid injections, then you may be a candidate for Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA). RFA utilizes radio waves to generate an electric current that can be directed to painful nerves to stop their ability to transmit pain signals. This procedure can be conveniently scheduled in the office.
Please contact us for a consultation to see if your condition can be treated with RFA, and get the back pain relief you need.
