RADIOFREQUENCY IN PAIN MANAGEMENT
Definition: Radiofrequency nerve (RFN) ablation is atreatment that uses radiofrequency energy (highfrequency alternating current) to interrupt of alternociceptive pathways of various sites.Modalities
radiofrequency---continuous radiofrequencycurrent is used to produce thermal nerve in a target nerve.
radiofrequency---short bursts of radiofrequencyare delivered to target nerve producing effects on signaltransduction to reduce pain.
Mechanism of action
Radiofrequency current (low energy, high frequency)Oscillation within the moleculesFriction between moleculesHeat productionBlockade of nerve transmission
