Ablation Q & A

Radiofrequency ablation is a pain-relieving treatment that is convenient, efficient, and minimally invasive. It is typically used to alleviate chronic pain in the lower back and neck.
Radiofrequency Ablation can benefit people with severe back and neck pain, particularly where other pain management treatments have failed to help. If you’ve tried a variety of other injection treatments and none of them have worked, an RFA might be the next step for you. It’s not uncommon for patients to report pain relief lasting 6 to 12 months after the procedure.
This procedure can help to alleviate back and neck pain for prolonged periods of time. It can increase your range of motion and help you to scale back on the consumption of medications taken because of your pain. It’s minimally invasive and highly accurate due to the precision of the inserted needle. The recovery time is faster than other treatments, there are minimal complications, and the resulting relief can enhance your quality of life.

To start the procedure, we’ll first numb the specific area we plan to treat with a local anesthetic. Using a thin needle with a live X-ray, Dr. Rehan Ali will then identify the region in which you’re experiencing your pain. After that, a microelectrode will be placed through the needle to create a heat lesion blocking the pain signals. This step can then be repeated until the nerves in the affected region have been damaged and cease to send pain signals.


We will carefully track your recovery after the operation for any adverse reactions, such as motor difficulties, mobility issues, muscle fatigue, and extreme pain. Because the burnt nerves may take a few weeks to lose their functionality, patients might feel some lingering pain following the procedure. If this happens there are prescription medications which can help during the recovery period.
