Radio Frequency Lesioning


Radiofrequency lesioning is a technique that can reduce the pain signals coming from a specific nerve. It uses a high frequency electrical current to heat up the nerve tissue so that it isn’t able to carry pain signals as effectively. The electrical current is delivered through a special needle that is positioned alongside the nerve where it sits between the joints of your spine. The correct nerve has to be identified first using diagnostic techniques such as nerve blocks. The effects of radiofrequency lesioning can provide semi-permanent relief from back or neck pain so it can be an effective longer term treatment for chronic pain.
