Benefits of Radiofrequency

What are the benefits of RFA?

The biggest benefit of RFA is that it provides effective relief in about 80% of patients! Though you’ll have some relief right away, it takes about one to three weeks for the full effects of RFA to take place. 

The best part about RFA is that you get effective pain relief while experiencing additional benefits, including:

  • Avoiding surgery
  • Instant pain relief
  • Little to no recovery time
  • Reduced reliance on painkillers
  • Improved mobility and function
  • Pain alleviation that lasts

Pain relief typically lasts six months to two years, depending on the patient’s specific situation. For some patients, the pain never comes back.

What can RFA treat?

At Interventional Pain and Regenerative Medicine Specialists, we use RFA to help patients experiencing certain chronic pain conditions, including:

  • Cervical headaches
  • Neck pain
  • Back pain
  • Whiplash
  • Facet joint disease
  • Certain types of neuropathy 

Your provider evaluates your condition to recommend the best treatment for your unique needs.
