Pulsed Radiofrequency Treatment
The first pulsed radiofrequency procedure on a lumbar dorsal root ganglion, took place on February 1, 1996. Since then, it has been applied to treatment of myriad pain conditions, including cervical radicular pain, facial pain including trigeminal neuralgia, sacroiliac joint pain, facet arthropathy, shoulder pain, postsurgical pain, radicular pain, groin pain and myofascial pain conditions.
At Pain Spa Dr Krishna is very experienced in pulsed radiofrequency treatments. Dr Krishna always performs pulsed radiofrequency ablation under ultrasound guidance for greater accuracy and improved safety. Ultrasound gives the added advantage of visualizing the surrounding tendons and muscles, which can be contributory to pain.
