Cervical Medial Branch Radiofrequency Ablation (CMBRFA) compared to Trident Multi-tined Cannula for People with Cervical Facet Pain
Cervical facet pain is an arthritis-like joint pain that can be chronic and occur in the back and neck of the spine. Cervical medial branch radiofrequency ablation (CMBRFA) is an effective treatment for this health issue. Trident Multi-tined Cannula is also a way to help people with cervical pain. Research is needed to learn the characteristics and effectiveness of Trident Multi-tined Cannula compared to CMBRFA. The information we gain may aid future patients.
