Many of us have arthritis in the small joints of our neck and back. These are known as facet joints or zygapophysial joints. For many people this arthritis doesn’t cause any problems, but for some these joints can cause pain in the back of neck. Fortunately, if these joints are the cause of your pain they can be treated with a procedure called a radiofrequency ablation or rhizotomy. This procedure is performed under x-ray guidance by your physician and provides long-lasting relief from back and neck pain.
