Radio Frequency Therapy - Coming soon

Back pain is one of the most common complaint in the Western world. Ninety percent of the population in the United Kingdom suffer from back pain at one or multiple points in their lifetime.

The dilemma that most clinicians face is establishing a clear diagnosis and effective treatment modality. Radiofrequency Treatment is for patients with myofascial back pain or mechanical back pain. Over the last decade a lot of evidence has been published on the role of active trigger points (a characteristic of myofascial back pain).

This device identifies these trigger points and administers electrical neuro-stimulation to these points. This promotes release of endorphins (natural endogenous pain killers) and also improves local blood supply, which is important as tissue ischaemia has been shown to result from prolonged muscle contraction in these active trigger points. The benefit of this treatment is that it is non-invasive, and avoids the need for painkillers (and their side effects) and possibly more invasive treatments such as injections and surgery.

We hope to be offering Radiofrequency Therapy at LBPC in the near future. If you would like to discuss this further, please contact us on 0203 865 5483 or
