Radiofrequency Ablation

Merry Meet again all!! I have an update on my dad that I just felt that I needed to share with you. As you know, my father has been suffering from chronic arthritis for a few years now ~ every year getting worse as his doctors have tried several different treatments including physical therapy in combination with pain meds.

A week ago, they tried something different. It is called Radiofrequency Ablation for arthritis pain and it is a procedure which involves using an electrical current by a radio wave to heat up a small area of nerve tissue, thereby decreasing pain signals from that specific area. This procedure is known for producing very good results which usually last up to 5 or 6 months.

My dad, Bill and my mom, Elrita taken on Mother's Day 2012


So far, my dad has noticed immediate results! His appetite has returned and he is able to function much, much better than before. My mom says that he is doing great! I can't tell you all how happy and relieved this makes me. I will also continue to give him his reiki treatments as he loves how they "relax" him so.

  4. Oh, I am so glad this has help your Dad. And I'm happy to hear you are going to continue the Reiki treatments. Has he consider acupuncture? I don't know if that would work, but it really has made a big difference for me.

    Our Mother's Blessings to you and yours
