Coolief RF Treatment
Coolief Cooled Radiofrequency (RF) Treatment can deliver just that. It is a minimally-invasive treatment option targeting nerves that are causing pain. 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.
Some of the benefits of the treatment include: effective pain relief, outpatient procedure, greater mobility, quick recovery time, cost effective, and no overnight hospital stay.
The procedure time varies depending upon your treatment, but it typically takes between 25 – 45 minutes. Since this minimally invasive outpatient treatment requires no general anesthesia, you should be able to return home shortly after the treatment. Unlike surgery, Coolief involves no incision. You may experience some discomfort at the radiofrequency site for a short period, but this discomfort can be treated with common over-the-counter medication.
Imagine where life could take you. Chronic pain doesn’t have to be met with surgery or medication. You deserve an option that’s minimally invasive, effective, and offers a short recovery. This advanced procedure uses cooled radiofrequency energy to safely target the sensory nerves causing pain. Coolief circulates water through the device while heating nervous tissue to create a treatment area that is larger than conventional RF treatments. Recommended rest will vary based on your unique needs and procedure. You can generally return to work and normal everyday activities within several days.
How It Works
- 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.
- Procedure time varies depending on the physician and the treatment needed, but according to physicians that have performed a Coolief Cooled RF procedure, the actual treatment time is less than one hour.
- Unlike surgery, Coolief involves no incision. Since this minimally invasive, outpatient treatment requires no general anesthesia, patients should be able to return home shortly after the treatment.
