Back and neck pain can occur due to many different reasons. When your pain is no longer temporary a different intervention may be necessary.
Before you consider back surgery come to Performance Spine & Sports Medicine for expert, quality treatment and care, we exhaust conservative, non-surgical spine treatments first.
Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) is a common non-surgical procedure used to successfully treat those suffering from back pain, neck pain, muscle pain, or other discomforts.
Guided by imaging techniques, the doctor inserts a thin needle through the skin and into the affected nerve. High-frequency electrical energy delivered through this needle heats up and destroys a small area of nerve tissue, thereby decreasing pain signals from the effect area. Some common advantages of having RFA performed are high success rate, same day procedure and a short recovery time.
What are the Benefits of Radiofrequency Ablation?
- Pain Relief up to 18 months
- Minimally Invasive
- Short Recovery
- High Success Rate
- Same Day Procedure
The entire staff at Performance Spine and Sports Medicine are very professional and the care that they provide is first rate. I have had PT and Chiropractic care in the past and I would rank this organization better in every way. The integrated model of having Chiropractors, Physical Therapists, massage therapists, and physicians under the same roof is very helpful and really facilitates interaction between all of the care providers. I would not hesitate to recommend this organization.
This is my second time at PSSM and the results are great once again. The staff was great and everyone is friendly and warm and most importantly they have gotten me back to pursuing my passion and work once again. I went in for a back problem and now I'm 90% back to normal and working on their stretches to make it 100%. No pain meds!!!!
