Radiofrequency, a minimally invasive procedure, represents an outstanding option for those seeking pain relief. In this document, you will be provided with a thorough explanation of this treatment and how it could benefit you.


What is Radiofrequency in Plantar Fascia, Trochanter and other areas?

Radiofrequency is a medical procedure that uses radiofrequency waves to treat pain in different parts of the body. By applying radiofrequency energy to the nerves responsible for transmitting pain in these areas, the pain signal is blocked, providing relief and improving the patient’s quality of life.


In which cases is Radiofrequency indicated in Plantar Fascia, Trochanter and other areas?

Radiofrequency can be especially useful in cases of:


  • Chronic pain in the plantar fascia, as a consequence of plantar fasciitis, heel spurs or other conditions.
  • Trochanter pain due to trochanteric bursitis, tendonitis, injury or wear and tear.
  • Pain in other areas that does not respond to conventional treatments such as medications, physical therapy or infiltrations.
  • Patients seeking a non-surgical solution with less recovery time.

How is the procedure performed?

The RF procedure is performed under local anesthesia and light sedation to ensure patient comfort. The physician uses a specialized device that emits radiofrequency waves and precisely guides it to the nerves responsible for transmitting pain in the affected areas using medical imaging technology. Once in position, radiofrequency energy is applied to the nerves, interrupting pain transmission.


What are the associated benefits and risks?

Some of the main benefits of Radiofrequency in Plantar Fascia, Trochanter and other areas include:


  • Significant pain relief, improving the patient’s quality of life.
  • Shorter recovery time compared to traditional surgical procedures.

  • Bleeding or hematoma in the treated area.
  • Adverse reactions to anesthesia or sedation.
