Coolief, a contraction of Cooled Radiofrequency, is a leap forward in treating chronic knee pain. This groundbreaking technology addresses knee osteoarthritis (OA), a common form of arthritis that occurs when joint cartilage gradually degrades. As the cartilage deteriorates, the resultant bone-on-bone friction can cause significant discomfort. Coolief offers an alternative, non-surgical pathway to manage this chronic condition.
The Coolief procedure involves the transmission of thermal radiofrequency energy via a small probe to heat the pain-causing tissues directly. This energy disrupts the nerves responsible for transmitting pain signals. What sets Coolief apart is its innovative use of water circulation through the device, enabling the treatment of an area of nervous tissue approximately five times larger than with traditional RF methods.
This cooled radiofrequency technology allows for a more precise treatment, giving your practitioner the ability to target the exact nerves causing pain with a greater degree of flexibility.
Advantages of Coolief
Opting for Coolief offers several key benefits:
Sustained Pain Relief
Coolief provides up to 24 months of pain relief, a duration significantly longer than many other traditional treatments.
Improved Physical Function
By effectively managing chronic pain, Coolief facilitates improved physical function, enabling you to return to an active lifestyle.
Reduced Dependence on Medication
As Coolief targets the root cause of chronic pain, patients often find a decrease in their reliance on pain relief drugs following treatment.
Coolief stands as the first and only radiofrequency treatment cleared by the FDA for OA knee pain. This validation highlights the safety and efficacy of this revolutionary technology.
Two substantial Level I randomised clinical studies have demonstrated the extended clinical durability of Coolief. These studies also found Coolief to be superior to intra-articular steroid injections (IAS) and hyaluronic acid (HA) in managing knee OA. This evidence firmly establishes Coolief as a safe, effective, and consistent treatment, adeptly bridging the gap between short-term pain relief treatments and total knee replacement.
