Radio Frequency Neurotomy
Some people experience pain in their lumbar facet joints. These are the back “joints” of your vertabrae. This type of pain is often caused by conditions such as osteoarthritis, degenerative changes of the spine or trauma to the back from an accident. Radio Frequency Neurotomy uses heat from radiofrequency waves to block the pain signal sent to the brain from these joints, and can be used as a long term or short term therapy.
