What is Radio-Frequency Pain Management?
Radio-frequency Pain Management is a type of treatment which uses innovative Neuromodulation technology to administer electrical current (produced by a radio waves) to a specific area of nerve tissue within the body, to help reduce the amount of pain signals sent to the brain.
Radio-frequency pain management treatment is a perfect solution for people who suffer with chronic lower back/neck pain and is regarded as a highly successful treatment for individuals suffering from degenerative joints and arthritis.
The procedure involves the use of a radio frequency generator and probes which are inserted into the nerve area. A surgeon will insert the needlepoint ends of the probes into the area where the patient is experiencing the pain using a Cannulae. Along with the use of an X-ray, the surgeon will then guide the needlepoint ends to the exact area of pain and begin the radio-frequency treatment.
Radio-frequency Pain Management Products
At Polar Medical we currently supply an innovative range of radio-frequency pain management products to both the NHS and private healthcare sector across the UK. We also provide an in-house training service to hospital staff and can also arrange for radio-frequency generators to be hired on either a long-term of short-term leases basis.
The Diros Owl RF Lesion Generator System
The Diros OWL® URF-3AP Lesion Generator with Multi-lesion Adapter (MLA-4) is designed to offer an accurate and safe relief to patients suffering with chronic pain. The generator works by connecting to a RF Probe (which can be up to 4 in total at any one time) and then inserted into the targeted nerve area and activated to deliver a continuous pulse of radio frequencies. This radio frequency then causes a legion to occur in the nerve which sends the pain messages to the brain, stopping it from sending further signals.
