With the new and innovative Coolief Cooled Radiofrequency (CRF) treatment Dr Ralph Rogers can target your pain more precisely than ever before and ensure that you are still able to do everything that you want to do.
You may have heard of radiofrequency (RF) treatment. It was introduced to help patients deal with chronic pain in their knees, back and hips. Using RF, medical professionals were able to stop nerves sending pain signals to the brain for around three months.
This was obviously a big deal back when this was first thought of - but now there has been a revolution in the world of pain relief. Coolief cooled radiofrequency is an innovative updating of the conventional method that gives patients relief from pain for much longer – and it takes even less time to administer.
This minimally invasive, non-surgical procedure gets right to the source of the pain and nullifies it before it can have an impact. Thermal radiofrequency energy is transmitted through a small probe heating the tissue directly to stop the nerves causing the pain. The medical advancement with CRF is that water is circulated through the device while it treats an area of nervous tissue around five times larger than with the old, out-dated RF method.
Cooled radiofrequency is more precise, while allowing your doctor to target exactly the right nerves with a higher degree of flexibility – something that wasn’t always possible with standard RF.
