The methods that are being used by The Pain Specialist to combat pain are Radio Frequency Therapy (RFT) and DLSC Nucleoplasty. These FDA-approved methods are being opted by many Singaporeans to manage their pains better than before.
The Radio Frequency Therapy (RFT) uses RFA to combat pain. An RFA uses radiofrequency energy to disrupt nerve functions. When this is done to a medial branch nerve, the nerve can no longer transmit pain from an injured facet joint.
The pain relief provided by Radio Frequency Therapy (RFT) varies from one person to another. This is due to the fact that nerves regenerate after an RFA. Due to the safe nature of this pain management method, another RFA can be done if the pain returns.
DLSC Nucleoplasty is an outpatient, percutaneous approach to disc decompression that is localized and can be controlled. It has been shown that disc decompression treats symptomatic patients suffering from back pain associated with contained herniated discs.
This method uses the Coblation technology. Coblation technology uses bipolar radiofrequency energy to remove tissue via plasma molecular dissociation. It is to be noted that over 35,000 patients have benefitted from DLSC Nucleoplasty with no unresolved complications.
With the advanced and safe pain management methods, The Pain Specialist is becoming the top choice among Singaporeans when it comes to pain management in Singapore.
