Radiofrequency ablation of the knee helps over 85% of patients achieve tremendous relief and avoid surgery!
San Antonio, Texas (PRWEB) December 27, 2015
The top San Antonio pain management clinics, Premier Pain Consultants, is now offering a revolutionary new procedure for chronic knee pain. The procedure, known as radiofrequency ablation, is covered by most major insurance plans and typically provides months of exceptional nonoperative relief. Call (210) 202-4030 for more information and scheduling.
Tens of millions of Americans suffer from chronic knee pain. While cortisone injections often provide a few weeks of relief, there may be side effects with the medication. Radiofrequency ablation for chronic knee pain has been shown to provide long term relief as an outpatient treatment that does not involve an injection.
The Double Board Certified San Antonio pain management doctors at the practice offer the RFA treatment, which involves applying thermal energy to the sensory nerves around the joint. Interestingly, the treatment does not affect any of the motor nerves, so there is no issue affecting one's ability to walk.
Knee relief after the treatment may last for upwards of a year, and a repeat treatment can be just as successful the second time around. Additional treatment options for arthritis may include TENS units, bracing, physical therapy and oral or topical anti-inflammatory medications. For short term exacerbations, opiates may be included for relief.
Most insurance plans are accepted at the practice's 2 locations, with patients being seen from a broad area in and around San Antonio. Radiofrequency ablation is also provided to patients suffering from back and neck pain, SI joint pain, migraines and chronic headaches.
