Materials and Methods: A descriptive and transversal study was carried out in 147 individuals submitted to Rhizotomy. The effectiveness of this procedure was evaluated in a period of 6 months postoperatively, by means of the EVA pain scale. Results: It is possible to demonstrate that the Facet Rizotomy is an effective method as pain therapy in patients with this pathology, since it was observed the relief they present after the intervention, 66.7% of them refer a degree of mild pain, however, 33.7% still report intense pain. Conclusions: It can be concluded that facet rhizotomy is useful in the management of low back pain. In addition, a high prevalence of overweight and obesity was determined, which increases the risk of developing this lumbar pathology.
