Intracept by Relievant is a new and revolutionary procedure that has been gaining attention as an effective treatment for chronic lower back pain. This minimally invasive procedure uses radiofrequency waves to disrupt the transmission of pain signals from the nerves in the vertebral body to the brain.
How Intracept Works
Intracept is a minimally invasive procedure that targets the basivertebral nerve, which is responsible for transmitting pain signals from the vertebral body to the brain. The procedure involves inserting a small probe into the vertebral body and using radiofrequency energy to heat and destroy the basivertebral nerve.
By disrupting the transmission of pain signals, Intracept provides long-term relief from chronic lower back pain. Patients who undergo this procedure can experience significant pain reduction and improved mobility, allowing them to engage in activities they were previously unable to do.
Benefits of Intracept
Intracept offers several benefits for patients suffering from chronic lower back pain. Including:
Long-lasting pain relief: Intracept provides long-term pain relief by disrupting the transmission of pain signals from the nerves in the vertebral body. Studies have shown that patients who undergo this procedure experience significant pain reduction for up to two years.
Minimally invasive: Intracept is a minimally invasive procedure that involves only a small incision in the back. This means that patients experience less pain, scarring, and downtime compared to traditional open surgery.
Quick recovery time: Most patients can return to normal activities within a few days of the procedure, allowing them to resume their daily lives without significant disruption.
Low risk of complications: Intracept has a low risk of complications, making it a safe and effective treatment option for patients with chronic lower back pain.
Is Intracept Right for You?
Intracept is an innovative and effective treatment option for patients suffering from chronic lower back pain. However, it is not suitable for everyone, and your interventional pain management specialist will determine if you are a good candidate for this procedure based on your medical history and current condition.
