An article in the most recent issue of Pain Pathways magazine (Summer 2012) highlighted the new evidence supporting cooled radiofrequency technique. The original article may be found by reading below.
“Approximately four out of five adults in the United States will experience chronic axial low back pain, the most common cause of job-related disability. Kimberly-Clark Health Center recently announced successful results of a randomized controlled trial on the use of cooled radiofrequency (RF) to treat sacroiliac (SI) joint pain in the lower back. The results are published in the March edition of Pain Medicine.
Cooled radiofrequency (RF) is a minimally invasive treatment for difficult-to-treat spine anatomy. The SIergy Cooled Radiofrequency System is intended to target and treat the pain-generating nerves in the lower back and buttock region that may be responsible for sacroiliac joint pain. The treatment approach can greatly reduce low back pain and potentially even eliminate it.
