For individuals suffering from long-term neck pain after a car accident with whiplash or back pain from arthritis, an RFA may allow people to need less pain medication, get back to work, and play with their kids. The treatment may be performed on multiple arthritic levels in the same setting. Both the arthritic lumbar and cervical spine respond well to RFA, and there is new research showing the sacroiliac joint receives pain relief as well with the treatment.

Radiofrequency ablation, also known as radiofrequency neurotomy, is an outpatient procedure that deadens the tiny nerve endings that provide sensation to arthritis joints. By eliminating these small nerve endings, which are known as medial branches, the patient experiences pain relief results that may persist for 12 to 18 months. Eventually, the small nerve endings may grow back. At that point, studies confirm that a repeat RFA typically works well again.

Spinal surgery is often not the best answer for back pain due to spinal arthritis. The reason is that multiple levels are usually affected, and no effective joint replacement exists for the spine like it does for hips and knees. Fusing multiple arthritic levels entails risks that often outweigh the benefits achieved.
Therefore, having a procedure that allows patients to avoid surgery while achieving substantial long-term pain relief has been revolutionary in the world of pain management. A radiofrequency neurotomy is a low risk procedure, and studies have shown a 60 to 90% success rate in well-respected publications such as The Spine Journal.

Along with this cutting edge procedure, Arizona Pain offers several additional non-operative treatments including medication management, physical rehabilitation, acupuncture, chiropractic manipulations and spinal decompression therapy. The combination of alternative and traditional options allows for individualized treatments, which have lead to over a 90% success rate overall.

Arizona Pain accepts a considerable amount of insurance options including Medicare, BCBS, Aetna, Cigna, United and Humana along with Personal Injury, Worker’s Compensation and many more. The clinics serve a broad area including Florida with Board Certified and Award Winning pain doctors and chiropractors.
