FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How long will it take to notice results from this procedure?
Sometimes pain could feel worse for one to two weeks. It could take up to one month for the nerve to completely lose function. Use Tylenol or previously-prescribed pain medications (as per their original prescription directions), intermittent ice packs, or Voltaren gel to manage pain.
How long will my injection last?
Over 80% of patients will receive long-term pain relief from RFA, lasting 6-18 months. The re-growing of nerves accounts for the return of symptoms.
Can I have this procedure done again if found helpful?
RFA can be repeated if adequate long-term relief was previously obtained.
