Radiofrequency ablation takes place under local anesthetic and, in many cases, mild sedation. While you can move about after radiofrequency ablation, you should plan to take it easy for a few days.

After radiofrequency ablation, you might benefit from a reduction in pain straight away. But you probably won’t feel the full effects of your treatment for a week or two.
