During this minimally-invasive procedure, the physician uses heat from radio waves to treat painful facet joints in your upper back. This procedure is also called radiofrequency rhizotomy. It can treat pain that doesn’t respond to medications or to physical therapy.
The physician uses the electrode to heat the nerve. This disrupts its ability to transmit pain signals. Several nerves may be treated if necessary. If the correct nerves were treated, you will gradually experience pain relief as you heal. This may take several weeks.
