The sacroiliac joints, located in the lower back and pelvic area, connect the sacrum, the large triangular bone at the base of the spine, to the large pelvic bone. Dysfunction of this joint may result in chronic pain, because the sensory nerve fibers in this region transmit pain signals throughout the body. Cooled radiofrequency neurotomy is a medical breakthrough that allows pain specialists to specifically target these nerve fibers by guiding radiofrequency heat at a precise target temperature through a thin probe to eliminate the transmission of pain through the body. This 45 minute procedure is minimally invasive and is designed to greatey reduce pain or eliminate it.
