Treatment for Chronic Back and Neck Pain
Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is a procedure used to reduce pain. Pain specialists at Barnes-Jewish West County use an electrical current produced by a radio wave to heat up a small area of nerve tissue, thereby decreasing pain signals from that specific area.
Physicians at the Pain Management Center at Barnes-Jewish West County use radiofrequency neuroablation to relieve patients suffering from chronic lower back and neck pain. Also, patients with pain associated with the degeneration of joints with arthritis can benefit from RFA.
