What if someone told you that all you needed to do to live pain free was a shot? For people who aren’t able to have surgery for whatever reason – or people who can’t afford to be out of work for the recovery time needed to heal, “Coolief” might be an option. Rush University researchers have created a new, noninvasive and innovative therapy that has allowed patients to live pain free for months after treatment, doing things they never thought they would be able to do again. This treatment targets three nerves that send pain signals to the brain, eliminating pain completely. The signals that these nerves sent to the brain are interrupted, so the brain can’t respond.
