A new treatment for the lower back pain associated with herniated discs has been successful in trials in Italy. Researchers at Sapienza University, Rome, used a pulsed radiofrequency probe to stimulate the muscles around the disc in a small study group. After only ten minutes of treatment, more than 80 percent of subjects were pain free and remained so after follow up. The probe is encased in a micro needle providing minimally invasive treatment for this common pain disorder.

Key Takeaways:

  • Inflammation and pain go away sand the distance between vertebrae returns to normal
  • The pulsations do not touch the disc and heal the herniation.
  • One single treatment of no longer than 10 minutes helped 80% of the patients treated.

“Researchers found that the majority of patients were pain free after receiving the new image-guided pulsed radiofrequency treatment for low back pain and sciatica for just 10 minutes.”
