Radiofrequency ablation uses an electric current to relieve pain by heating up a small area of a nerve. This stops the nerve from sending pain signals.

Most patients have less pain after radiofrequency ablation. But how well the procedure works depends on the cause and location of the pain. Pain relief usually lasts 6-12 months. Sometimes it can last for years.
