Posted by Carol S on 5/26/02 at 10:06 (085279)

I had this procedure done and it has helped with the pain.I had scar tissue from surgery causing the pain in my foot,I can now stand for longer periods on my foot,where before I could not stand at all.This is a great improve ment for me.This is the first pain relieve I have receive in 3 years.I have went for all the conventional modalties without any relieve.So thank god for radio frequency lesioning.Dr. Cozzarelli performs this procedure.He is located in New Jersey.

I also had radio frequency lesioning 3 years ago for low back pain. Unfortunately it did not help. I also had epidurals,facet injections and a discogram. I found all of them uncomfortable but I have had worse things. All of these procedures are part of the typical protocol a Pain Specialist will take your through with low back pain.

My daughter had this procedure done for facets in her neck and it relieved the pain and worked for two years,but now she is going to have it done again because it only lasts two years.For her it is the only thing that helps with the pain.
