What is Radiofrequency (RF)?

Radiofrequency (RF) is a device that converts alternating electrical current into heat energy. This is used for the control of pain, damage caused by current and heat energy.

Radiofrequency is one of the many methods used in pain treatment. Classical RF application has been implemented in the world for about 40 years. The first RF generator was invented by Cosman at the beginning of the 1950s. The treatment started in 1974. The cut-off application developed in recent years has reduced the side effects of the classical radiofrequency and thus provides a safer application.

Types of radiofrequency therapy What is it?

RF, the so-called 'nerve burning therapy', is commonly applied in two ways. In classical or traditional practice, continuous current is given. This is called continuous RF (CRF). The technique developed in recent years is to give a continuous stream. This is called pulsed RF (PRF). The advantage of intermittent radiofrequency application is that it causes much less side effects. In conventional practice, nerve, vein and tissue burns are almost never seen in cut-off applications.

How does RF work?

Continuous radiofrequency (CRF) is a high frequency alternative current that causes some kind of tissue damage to the targeted area. Tissue damage occurs at 60-90 degrees.

In the treatment of intermittent radiofrequency (PRF), the current is applied intermittently and will produce a temperature as low as 42 degrees. Contrary to the continuous application of heat does not occur in the heat nerve lesion. The effect of the intermittent radiofrequency is due to the regulatory feature on the nerves in the area where it is affected. This usually provides long-term or permanent pain relief. Currently, PRF, ie cut-off RF, is widely used in the treatment of pain.

Which diseases are used in the treatment of radiofrequency (RF)?

  • calcification of waist and neck joints, facet joint pain
  • Waist and neck hernias
  • Heeled plantar, plantar fasciitis
  • Trigeminal neuralgia
  • pain due to genital area nerves
  • Sacroiliac joint pathologies
  • Shoulder pain, frozen shoulder
  • Knee sores, severe knee calcification
  • Tail is the most effective method known in pain.
