The radiofrequency waves are introduced to heat the tip of the needle and a heat lesion is created on the medial branch nerves to stop the nerve’s ability to send pain signals to the brain.
Pain relief from Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) can last from 6 to 12 months and in some cases, relief can last for years.
Some of the common conditions that cause lumbar pain in the medial branch nerves are osteoarthritis (OA), spinal stenosis, or back injury such an in a car accident.
