Radiofrequency ablation is a procedure that is used to relieve severe, chronic pain caused by spinal arthritis. Heat is used to block pain signals from reaching the brain by concentrating it on certain nerve regions.
A specialized radiofrequency needle is guided along the targeted nerves by a clinician using X-ray guidance. To target the correct nerves and help position the needle, a little amount of electrical current is employed. The needle is then heated to damage the nerve’s capacity to send signals, and radiofrequency waves are injected through it.
Previously, treating varicose veins required an intrusive procedure to remove the diseased veins from the body. Because of the pricey general anaesthetic used, there was no pain or suffering throughout the treatment, but you had to have a very good cardiovascular and pulmonary system to qualify. The recuperation procedure was both lengthy and difficult due to the extensive incisions used to remove the veins.
Building on the previous point, because the treatment is non-invasive, there is no recuperation period like there is after an intrusive operation. There is a one- to three-week recovery period after an invasive procedure, as well as six weeks of considerable limits on your regular activities.
You are free to return to anything else you had planned for the day after obtaining this therapy, such as work or school. Allow someone else to drive you around so you can relax and enjoy the remainder of your day.
Another fantastic advantage of radiofrequency ablation by Scorthogroup is that you don’t need to do much in advance of the procedure. You must fast for several hours, stop taking certain drugs and supplements for at least several days, and quit smoking and drinking alcohol for at least several weeks before having an invasive operation. To conclude, you should remove any jewelry you are wearing before coming in for your appointment, dress comfortably, bathe with antibacterial soap the morning of your treatment, and arrange for someone to take you home if your legs are being treated for varicose or spider veins.
Sclerotherapy is the most widely used non-invasive varicose and spider vein treatment, however it is not appropriate for everyone. Sclerotherapy has a number of drawbacks, one of which is that it entails the injection of a saline solution. Unfortunately, many people are terrified of needles or are uncomfortable with the concept of being injected with anything, even saltwater.
One of the benefits of radiofrequency ablation is that it does not involve the use of needles. If you are frightened of needles and don’t have the time or money to undergo an invasive vein removal operation, this could be the best option for you.
