If you have been suffering from lower back pain and conservative measures are no longer (or have never been) working for you, this could be a new treatment option. Learn all about Intracept from Relievant and what it could mean for your future.
What is Intracept from Relievant?
Intracept is a privately owned, medical device company located in Minneapolis, MN. They have spent two decades researching and developing the Intracept procedure. This clinically proven procedure is designed to target your vertebral endplate.
Oftentimes, chronic lower back pain is thought to have been derived from your intervertebral discs. When discs were targeted and treated, it still did not yield results that resolved the pain. Vertebral endplates have now been researched and determined to be a cause of lower back pain.
Is Intracept From Relievant Effective?
Relievant recently released data from a 5-year study of patients that received long-term clinical benefits from this procedure. The data proves that the results are effective for many patients. Direct from their website, Relievant reported the following:
- Nearly half of patients (47%) reported 75% or greater reduction in pain; more than a third (34%) reported complete pain resolution
- 75% of patients demonstrated both a >15-point ODI improvement and >2-point VAS improvement
- 73% reduction in active opioid use, defined as taking an opioid at least once per week
- 93% reduction in injections compared to baseline
- High patient satisfaction with the procedure
- 79% indicated they would have the procedure again for the same condition
- 65% had resumed the level of activity they enjoyed prior to low back pain
How Does the Intracept Procedure Work?
The basic idea behind the Intracept procedure includes using fluoroscopic guidance to maneuver a cannula through the pedicle of your vertebrae. The cannula will make a channel or a path to your basivertebral nerve. Next, an Intracept Radiofrequency Probe is inserted through the channel. This then allows the Relievant Radiofrequency Generator to ablate your nerve.
What Are the Benefits of Intracept From Relievant?
While this procedure is new and not many doctors in North Scottsdale are offering this to their clients, the benefits are truly amazing. Many people are reducing their need for painkillers and finding that most, if not all, of their chronic lower back pain has resolved. Other benefits of Intracept from Relievant include:
- A new treatment option if you have not responded well to other, conservative measures or therapy.
- It is minimally invasive and can be done as an outpatient procedure.
- There is no implant.
- The structure of your spine will be fully preserved.
- Relief of lower chronic back pain awaits you.
