COOLIEF: Cooled Radiofrequency Treatment
What Is It:
COOLIEF cooled radiofrequency is a minimally invasive treatment option targeting nerves that are causing pain.
How Does it Work:
This advanced procedure uses cooled radiofrequency energy to safely target the sensory nerves causing pain. RF energy heats and cools the tissue at the site of pain. COOLIEF circulates water through the device while heating nervous tissue to create a treatment area that is larger than conventional RF treatments. This combination targets the pain-causing nerves without excessive heating, leading to pain relief.
Why COOLIEF Cooled Radiogrequency:
Studies have been shown to provide chronic back pain patients with up to 24 months of pain relief, improved physical function, and reduced drug utilization.
• Effective pain relief
• Outpatient procedure
• Improved mobility
• Quick recovery time
• No overnight hospital stay: outpatient procedure
• Minimally invasive
Coolief is a Better Option:
In the past patients had to rely on surgery for relief. Surgery is an invasive and expensive path to pain relief. Surgery can be beneficial in properly selected patients. However, it is not for everyone, requires a much longer recovery.
An old way of thinking about pain relief Pain relief has long relied on a daily regimen of prescription medication and other over-the-counter pharmaceutical treatments, yet these don’t effectively target nerves that cause pain.Pain relievers when used for an extended period of time may be associated with numerous side effects.
