Who Use RF Energy To Reduce Pain
The advanced COOLIEF method uses a gentle and focused pulse of radiofrequency energy to simultaneously warm and cool tissues and nerves, covering a larger treatment area than traditional RF therapy. COOLIEF is a minimally invasive out patient treatment option targeting nerves that are causing pain.
What to Expect
Pain Institiute of Long Island specialists perform the COOLIEF minimally invasive treatment as an out patient procedure. There is very little preparation, and most patients go back to work within a few hours or days.
In most cases this treatment will provide chronic back pain patients with long-lasting pain relief. It’s perfectly normal for Cooled Radiofrequency Treatment recipients to feel some discomfort after the procedure for a short period, but this can be treated with ice packs to the treatment area.
What it Treats
Cooled Radiofrequency Treatment targets the nerve endings that trigger pain messages, so the treatment is effective against a variety of conditions, including back pain, neck pain, knee pain, hip pain and sacroiliac joint pain.
