Appproval and results
In 2016, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved this treatment (Coolief) for use as treatment in chronic knee pain due to osteoarthritis. The approval was based on the high level of positive results seen after treatment, including longer lasting pain relief and safe measures. Coolief has many success stories from patients who believed they were going to live the rest of their lives out in chronic pain, not being able to do the things they desired. Coolief has changed the lives of these people by allowing them to climb stairs, bend down, dance, and go hiking without pain, for the first time in a long time.
Because this treatment is safe for everyone, it can be used by people who don’t qualify for surgery due to certain medical conditions like diabetes, weight, and age. This comes as a huge relief to those individuals because cortisone shots can only be done every so often and don’t last nearly as long.
