But Radiofrequency Ablation (also called thermal neurolysis), a method whereby heat is generated around the nerves thereby disabling the capacity of them to send signals of pain to the brain of the same nerves or plexuses, is slowly replacing the chemical neurolysis as it produces more controlled and precise impact.
Neurolysis is a common clinical treatment for spasticity, and comprises injections of alcohol or phenol into the relevant nerve trunk or nerve entry points (NEPs); motor points).
