The most common use of radiofrequency ablation is the treatment of facet joint pain. Facet joints connect bones in the spinal column called vertebrae. If small nerves located in the facet joints become inflamed or damaged, pain signals are sent by them and received by the brain. This pain can often become chronic and the ablation treatment is used to destroy these tiny medial branch nerves that transmit the pain signals. This same procedure is also effectively applied for pain relief for pain in the cervical facets, pain of the lower back, and pain due to arthritis.
