Radio Frequency procedure effective against chronic pain

The Partners against Pain have reported that 43% of Americans suffer from chronic pain and more than half of them find that over the counter medication and prescription medication does not provide complete relief.

The treatment has been successful on more than 5,000 patients so far.
