The iovera° treatment uses the body’s natural response to cold to treat nerves and immediately reduce pain–without the use of drugs. Treated nerves are stopped from sending pain signals for a period of time, followed by a restoration of function.*It is important to note that the iovera° therapy does not treat the underlying cause of the pain.
Timely remediation is necessary to address and treat the cause of pain.
iovera° harnesses the power of cold to immediately reduce pain. Cryoanalgesia using the patented iovera° system delivers a localized nerve block.
The iovera° treatment can be performed prior to knee surgery to help reduce your pain after surgery or to treat chronic pain due to osteoarthritis of the knee.
To start a cold zone is created, lowering the temperature to below -20°C
The cold zone causes degeneration of the axon and myelin sheath, temporarily blocking nerve signals.
Post treatment, the axon regenerates at the rate of about 1 to 2 mm per day.
