Rhizolysis information and locations in Mexico

Rhizolysis is a minimally invasive procedure used to eliminate and treat symptoms of chronic neck and low back pain that originates on the facet joints.
The facet joints are small joints that are located on both sides of the spine. Similar to other joints, facet joints help to stabilize and allows your spine to bend and twist. During a rhizolysis, the neurosurgeon places a small needle near the nerve that comes from the joint, then a probe or thin wire is passed through the needle, the probe sends radiofrequency heat to the nerve, so it disrupts its ability to send signals to the spine.
