Radiofrequency Abalation / Cryoablation
If you have been diagnosed as having pain coming from your facet joints, you may be a candidate for this procedure. Using a similar technique to the facet injection, the doctor uses either heat or cold to kill the nerves causing your pain. You will not have any loss of movement or paralysis as a result of this procedure as it only targets the nerves that sense pain. This procedure can provide relief for up to 12 months and can be safely repeated. For safety reasons we ask that you not drive a vehicle for two hours following this procedure.
