Re: does burning the nerves help soft tissue pain

Even if your pain isnt "nerve related" or neuropathic, surely they can kill the nerves responsible for transmitting pain to the brain, in the same way a dental anaesthetic stops the pain of having ones teeth drilled, which isnt neuropathic pain?

I might be wrong of course, but thats how it seems to a layman like me.
