BACKGROUND: Neuropathic pain is a result of a primary lesion or dysfunction of the peripheral or central nervous system, and its treatment is challenging. Animal 0 models have been helpful in understanding mechanisms of neuropathic pain and 0 in developing new treatment strategies. In this study, we examined the effect of percutaneOLIS pulsed radiofrequency (PRF), which is a minimally invasive pain treatment method, on mechanical allodynia in a neuropathic pain rat model.
