Burning Away Back Pain with Radiofrequency Ablation
Using heat energy to temporarily destroy or stun the spinal nerves is an alternative for many with back pain.
Treating chronic spinal pain can be tricky. The spine’s flexibility, formed by a complex series of segments, allows us to twist and turn and every movement in between.
