Thermotherapy of the spinal or facet joints
(radio frequency therapy)
Changes to the intervertebral joints due to age-related wear often lead to chronic and intense pain in the lumbar and cervical spine (pains in the neck and shoulders). Many patients with such complaints can be gently helped with this minimally invasive thermotherapy.
Here the nerve on the intervertebral joint that triggers the pain is precisely located with the aid of computer control and image monitoring and, by means of a thin probe, made insensitive with a minimum of pain.
