Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) also called rhizotomy or neurotomy is a novel non-surgical technique of treating pain. This technique employs radiofrequency waves to produce heat and the heat produced damage the nerves transmitting pain signal to the brain. This procedure is performed to treat painful facet joints in the spine that usually cause chronic low back pain and neck pain.

The sacroiliac joint connects the lowest part of the spine, the sacrum, to the adjoining bones of the pelvis, the iliac bones that are present on either side of the sacrum. In an adult there is minimal movement at these joints. However in a female, they play an important role during delivery where they relax and increase the flexibility of the pelvis.

Independent Medical Evaluation
Independent medical evaluation (IME) is an examination performed to determine impairment and/or disability for the purpose of claims or legal proceedings. A physician who performs the IME is not involved in the diagnosis and treatment plan of an individual, so he/she provides an independent and unbiased report.

Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) is a therapy that uses low-voltage current to relieve acute and chronic pain. It is indicated for pain relief in conditions such as osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, back and neck pain, tendinitis, cancer pain, labor pain and sprains.

Trigger Point Injections
Trigger point injection (TPI) are used to treat intense pain in the muscles containing trigger points. Trigger points are tight bands or knots that are formed when the muscle fails to relax after the contraction. A trigger point may also cause referred pain(pain in another part of the body) by irritating the adjacent nerves.
