September is National Pain Awareness Month
This month was created to increase the awareness about the effects of pain and to open the lines of communication in our local communities, so that pain can be better understood and managed.
Did you know?
• Pain affects more than Americans than diabetes, heart disease, and cancer combined.
• 80% of people in the U.S. will experience back pain at some point in their lives.
One of our top priorities at Spine & Joint Pain Specialists is to spread awareness and educate our patients about treatments options available to alleviate painful conditions.
Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is one of our treatment options to manage pain originating from your spine. In this procedure, radio waves are used to create a current that heats a small area of nerve tissue, stopping it from sending pain signals to your brain. RFA can provide lasting relief for people with chronic pain, especially in the lower back & neck.
SJPS is dedicated to educating our patients on their treatment options. Our providers are experts in identifying options to treat the root cause of your pain. Call us today for an appointment to discuss if this is right for you!
