Pulsed Radiofrequency (PRF)
The London Podiatry Centre offers pulsed radiofrequency for chronic nerve pain of the ankle and foot.
The London Podiatry Centre is proud to offer pulsed radiofrequency (PRF) as a treatment option for chronic nerve pain of the foot and ankle. This innovative procedure can provide long-lasting pain relief without the need for surgery and has helped many patients regain their quality of life.
PRF is a minimally invasive procedure that uses low-frequency electrical pulses to disrupt nerve function and provide pain relief. The procedure involves inserting a thin needle electrode near the affected nerve, which is guided using imaging techniques such as fluoroscopy or ultrasound. Once the electrode is in the correct position, a series of short electrical pulses are delivered to the nerve, causing the nerve cells to become depolarised and disrupting their ability to transmit pain signals.
One of the key benefits of PRF is that it provides long-lasting pain relief without the need for surgery. Unlike traditional surgical treatments for nerve pain, PRF is minimally invasive and can be performed on an outpatient basis. This means that patients can return home the same day and resume their normal activities within a few days.
PRF is also a safe and effective treatment option for chronic nerve pain of the foot and ankle. The procedure has a low risk of complications. In addition, PRF does not damage the nerve tissue, which means that it can be repeated if necessary.
