With this procedure, an electrical current produced by a radio wave is used to heat up an affected area of nerve tissue in the spine, thereby decreasing pain signals to the brain from that specific area. Radiofrequency ablation has proven to be a safe and effective way to treat certain types of pain. In some cases, pain relief from radiofrequency ablation can last from six to twelve months. In others, it can last for years. This minimally invasive procedure is well-tolerated and has a very low risk for complications.

In many cases, a medial branch block will be administered prior to administering radiofrequency ablation, to confirm the source of the pain. If a medial branch block provides immediate relief in a specified area of the spine, radiofrequency ablation may used to provide longer-term relief.
