Treating the pain of the fifth nerve with radio-frequency:
We can confirm that treating the pain of the fifth nerve with thermal frequency is an effective and safe treatment, as the treatment is through partial anesthesia, after which the thermal frequency needle is inserted and directed to the nerve root to reduce the resulting pain waves by giving the thermal frequency charges to work on the sensory stimulation and the patient can leave the hospital afterward. And the exercise of his life very naturally.
Tension and migraine pain: causes, symptoms and treatment methods

Cluster headache pain definition, symptoms, and treatment methods

Treating cluster headache pain with heat frequency
And the method of treating pain with thermal frequency is similar to the treatment of previous headache pain in the effect and the idea of treatment with a slight difference in the directed nerve, which has thermal frequency pulses, where the causative nerve is tested first and the impulses are directed to the responding nerve
