Pain, in all of its forms and levels, has been an integral part of human history. And, very often, it is much more than a feeling of discomfort. In many cases, it has a substantial impact on the overall quality of life, causing severe physical and mental health issues. Many treatments have been formed, and one of the most recent ones is radiofrequency ablation.
Radiofrequency ablation is one of the newest non-invasive methods for pain relief. The secret to its rising success lies in the fact that it uses radio waves to stop the signals specific nerves send to the brain. If the brain does not receive information from peripheral tissues, the pain cannot be perceived, and the relief is instantaneous.
This procedure is most frequently used in cases of chronic pain, particularly those where improvements in pain relief haven’t been successful. Moreover, radiofrequency ablation can be combined with other pain relief methods to enhance their results. However, it is important to understand that regardless of how successful radiofrequency is in pain relief, it cannot fix the underlying cause of the problem, and is not a long-term solution.
