Most nerves control both sensation and movement in a portion of the body. When destroying nerves, it is vital that we do not destroy motor nerves that supply important muscles. For the most part we can treat nerves that either do not have any motor function or nerves that supply muscles that we can do without. There are many nerves in the neck, face and chest region that can be treated using radiofrequency. A similar but non-destructive technique called pulsed radiofrequency denervation can sometimes be used to provide relief from pain that involves nerves with both significant sensory and motor function.
