Advanced Pain Institute of Texas has been talking about back pain lately for a reason – it’s a common issue experienced by the majority of adults. The good news is that there is a procedure called Rhizotomy that can help those experiencing persistent or chronic back pain.

Rhizotomy, also known as radiofrequency ablation, is a minimally-invasive, nonsurgical procedure that treats pain resulting from arthritis and degeneration of the small joints in the spine. The procedure is preceded by two test block procedures to isolate the source of the pain and confirm the diagnosis.

Dr. John Broadnax explained that the first step in the procedure involves injecting numbing medicine into the arthritic joints in the back to diagnose where the pain is coming from. Once the source of the pain is identified, the Rhizotomy is performed to address the pain from those arthritic regions in the back. Dr. Eric Anderson added that the procedure is quick, efficient, and can lead to significant results.

“This should significantly decrease the pain in the neck or back and allow the patient to go back to rehabilitate that area,” he said. “Once their back pain is improved, patients can return to normal activities.”
