Treatment of herniated disc with thermal frequency
How is a herniated disc treated with radio-frequency in a pain clinic?
Treatment of herniated disc with thermal frequency by the method of local anesthesia and interventional rays after showing the image taken on a display screen on the device immediately and we were able to take multiple pictures and quickly in a few seconds, which makes it easier to adjust the location of the needle used for injection in a few seconds in the operating room under sterilization After determining the location of the nerve roots to be treated by radiation, the skin is anesthetized with a thin needle with local anesthesia, and a thin, completely isolated needle is inserted, except for a small part in the front of it, and a cable from the thermal frequency device is inserted inside the needle so that all the therapeutic energy is concentrated On the nerve roots and the correct position of the needle is confirmed by a test inside the thermal frequency device, in order to ensure the best results and safety, and PRF is also used on the central nerve roots with a herniated disc
Why is radio-frequency used to treat a herniated disc?
radio-frequency is one of the most used techniques in the treatment of spine and joint problems because it treats the peripheral and central nerves with two techniques, the normal thermal frequency, and the pulsed thermal frequency, which is a completely safe, effective, and very successful technique.
1- Working safely on the nerve roots in the event of a herniated disc.
2- The scarcity of the occurrence of any sensory-motor effect on the nerve to be treated (that is, the nerve preserves the same degree of feeling and the same degree of movement with only a change in the nature of the pain transfer from the nerve)
3- Introducing the application of thermal frequency to the peripheral nerves.
4- Working safely on all nerves of the body, whether sensory or motor, without any dangers to these nerves.
5- The use of thermal frequency in cases of migraine and nerve pain in the fifth and ninth cerebrum.
radio-frequency is also used in the treatment of herniated disc and lower back and neck pain in more than one way (cartilage evaporation - treatment of inflamed and swollen nerve roots due to the herniated disc - treatment of roughness of the joints of the vertebrae in the neck, thoracic region, and lower back)
And it can be used with cartilage suction - laser cartilage vaporization - treatment of cartilage surgery failure and regenerative cartilage
What are the advantages and possibilities of using a radio-frequency device in treatment?
The ability to precisely control the size of the affected area.
radio-frequency can be used safely with patients with pressure, heart, diabetes, and chronic diseases, who are prohibited from undergoing surgical intervention because of the danger of surgery on them because the heat frequency is under the influence of local anesthesia.
The possibility of precisely controlling the location of the nerve to be affected (Sensory stimulation and Motor stimulation.) This is done by doing a test for the nerve in terms of sensation and movement.
The nerve function is completely preserved greatly.
All of these uses are made using local anesthesia and the use of a radioactive interference device.
