LEARN ABOUT COOLIEF*

What is Osteoarthritis of the knee?

If you’re living with Osteoarthritis (OA), you’re not alone. It affects over 30 million adults in the U.S., and the knee is one of the most commonly affected areas. 1

OA occurs when the padding between your bones (cartilage) undergoes “wear and tear.” It can break down and lead to joint pain, swelling, stiffness, and decreased range of motion.1

Many people with OA are in pain, but are not yet at a point where they are ready to have surgery. Some may have had surgery, but are still experiencing pain in their knees. 

Does that sound like you?

What about surgery?

 

Knee replacement surgery can benefit many patients. But for some, surgery is too risky (due to BMI, age, or other health conditions).2,3 In fact, patients suffering from chronic knee pain wait an average of nine years from diagnosis to surgery.4 Others choose not to pursue surgery at all.

What about steroids and medications? Additional pain treatments may include steroid injections, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, and opioids. Yet these may only provide relief for a short time, and can come with side effects.5

However, COOLIEF* has been clinically proven to provide longer-lasting pain relief and superior mobility compared to steroid injections.6,7 The procedure is also non-narcotic unlike opioids, which can pose serious risks including the potential for abuse and dependence. 5

How can COOLIEF* Cooled RF help?

 

The first and only radiofrequency treatment cleared by the FDA for osteoarthritis knee pain, COOLIEF* Cooled RF is a minimally-invasive, non-narcotic procedure that treats chronic back, knee and hip pain.

Radiofrequency ablation deactivates the nerves responsible for sending pain signals to the brain. As the only currently known radiofrequency pain management system using water-cooled technology to safely deactivate pain-causing sensory nerves, COOLIEF* is clinically proven to provide long termƗ pain relief, improve physical functionality and reduced drug utilization.8,9,10

Get relief from OA knee pain with COOLIEF* Cooled RF

Don’t be benched by back pain

Chronic back pain shouldn’t mean you have to sit life out. It also doesn’t always have to be met with surgery or medication.

You deserve consideration of an option that can provide non-surgical, sustained relief up to 24 months generally and 12 months for osteoarthritis of the knee, while reducing the need for medication.9 COOLIEF* Cooled RF can deliver just that. Cooled radiofrequency targets pain at the source, enabling you to get back in the action.
