Abstract

Background: Injury of a peripheral nerve may lead to neuropathic pain, a form of chronic pain that does not respond to traditional pain therapies. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of pulsed radiofrequency (PRF) applied to the L5 and L6 dorsal roots oil the neuropathic pain that develops after sciatic nerve injury in rabbits.
