    The procedure is minimally invasive and can be done in a doctor's office or outpatient clinic. Potential side effects are rare and typically minor in nature. Pain relief from facet injection can help to improve mobility, reduce inflammation, and provide lasting relief from chronic pain conditions. 
    Facet injection offers an excellent solution for those seeking safe and effective pain relief.

Radiofrequency Ablation

Radiofrequency ablation is a minimally invasive procedure used to reduce pain and improve mobility by delivering electrical energy through a needle-like electrode to precisely target specific nerves. This procedure can be used as a solution for chronic pain conditions such as lower back or neck pain, nerve damage, arthritis, and fibromyalgia.

By delivering a burst of electrical energy, the nerve is ablated or destroyed in the affected area. Pain signals from the nerves are no longer able to reach the brain and the sensation of pain is relieved. The results are usually long-term, with some patients reporting relief for up to several years after their treatment.
