The advanced COOLIEF* method uses a gentle and focused pulse of radiofrequency energy to target nerves that are causing pain. The treatment simultaneously warms and cools the tissues and nerves, covering a larger treatment area than traditional RF therapy.
WHAT TO EXPECT
The Pain Institute of Long Island specialists perform the COOLIEF* minimally invasive treatment as an outpatient procedure. There is very little preparation, and most patients are able to go back to work within a few hours or days. It is normal for patients who receive COOLIEF* treatment to feel some discomfort after the procedure for a short period of time. This can be treated by applying ice packs to the treatment area.
WHAT IT TREATS
COOLIEF* targets the nerve endings that trigger pain messages. It is effective against a variety of conditions, including back pain, neck pain, knee pain, hip pain, and sacroiliac joint pain.
