The Spine & Sports Health Center Announces Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) Procedures Are Available to Treat Chronic Neck or Low Back Pain


Hoboken, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/05/2017 -- The Spine & Sports Health Center is pleased to announce that Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) procedures are available to treat chronic neck or low back pain. Since the beginning, the pain specialists at the medical practice's office in Hoboken, NJ, Bayonne, NJ, and Jersey City, NJ, have used innovative treatment options and procedures to help patients find relief from spine and joint pain and injuries.

RFA is a non-surgical procedure that involves using radio waves to heat up nerves on the spine, which then prevents them from sending pain signals to the brain. The procedure requires no incisions or hardware, and before the procedure begins, the patient will be administered a sedative and local anesthetic. Depending upon how many areas are being treated, the procedure will last anywhere from 20 minutes to up an hour. Very little downtime is required, and most patients will be able to resume their daily physical activities a few days later. Last, but not least, most patients who undergo RFA procedures find pain relief a couple of weeks after their procedures, with the most dramatic relief four to six weeks later.

For the past several years, Medical Director of The Spine & Sports Health Center, Alex Visco, M.D., and the practice's Interventional Pain Management Specialist, Ron Ben-Meir, D.O., have utilized RFA to help numerous patients live pain-free lives and maintain active lifestyles. However, RFA is just one of the non-surgical procedures that they use to help patients find adequate pain relief.
