Patients who were treated with a novel image guided pulsed radiofrequency procedure reported lower or eliminated levels of pain. Everyone in the study was being treated for sciatica or other lower back pain. A very typical problem, more than four out of five individuals experience pain in the lower back at least once during their life. One in five of those who have acute pain will develop chronic pain that persists for longer than a year. The new treatment is of a low invasive nature and seems very effective.
