If you experience spinal pain due to temporarily blocked nerves, your doctor will evaluate you and may at first try medication. If your pain persists, however, there are a few options to consider. A minimally invasive option is cryoneurolysis, which is also known as cryoablation.

Your doctor will insert a small probe into the nerve and freeze it. The cold causes the nerve to freeze and destroys it. It will regenerate as a healthy nerve. This technique relieves the pain you are experiencing and is an alternative to chemical injections or more invasive surgery.
