Back pain affects over 80% of Americans at some point. For an unfortunate few, the back pain becomes chronic and may cause lost time from work, inability to play with one's kids and depression.
Traditional pain treatments such as spinal joint injections work very well for short term pain relief of a few weeks to months. However, Consultants in Pain Medicine is now offering a revolutionary procedure, radiofrequency ablation, that may provide eighteen months of relief.
Radiofrequency ablation, known as RFA for short, is a low risk, outpatient procedure that applies thermal energy to the tiny nerve endings supplying sensation to spinal joints. Without sensation, the pain to arthritic joints is dramatically reduced over 75% of the time.
This pain relief often lasts 12 to 18 months. Studies also show that if the pain relief wears off, a repeat RFA typically produces the same amount of relief again.
Dr. Stephanie Jones is a Double Board Certified pain management doctor San Antonio trusts and respects, and is an expert in radiofrequency ablation for both chronic back or neck pain. Most insurance is accepted at the practice, and patients are seen out of two San Antonio pain clinics.
