They apply powerful medications, such as steroids and opioids, directly onto or near the source of pain, such as an epidural steroid injection. Radiofrequency Rhizotomy or radiofrequency ablation and neuroablation, temporarily turns off the nerve and its ability to send and receive pain messages to the brain. It involves x-ray guidance and a needle with a heated electrode at the tip and can provide pain relief for 6 to 12 months.

Pain pumps provide continuous pain relief, and may eliminate the need for oral medications. Electrical Stimulation are similar to a pain pumps. This procedure involves a stimulator implanted with an electrical lead to rely electrical pulses directly to the source of the pain.
