hip, knee, and shoulder replacement alternative: cooled rf

Written by Super User

Can cooled RF technology reduce the need for hip, knee or shoulder replacement?

cooled RF technology reduce the need for shoulder replacementIf you are suffering from severe and chronic pain in your hip, knee or shoulder, your doctor may recommend that you have a replacement of that joint through a major surgical procedure. Although these procedures are done on a routine basis, there are risks that are associated with them, including the possibility for infection or additional complications, which could make the problem worse. One of the options that can be considered for reducing the pain that is associated with arthritis or damage to these areas is cooled RF technology. This technology produces lesions that deaden the nerves which are transmitting pain from the area to your brain.

Cooled RF technology is a minimally invasive procedure and as such, it carries fewer risks than more serious, major surgical procedures, such as the hip or knee replacement. It is also done on an outpatient basis so in many cases, you will be able to return to your day-to-day life in a short amount of time after the procedure takes place. In most cases, cooled RF technology is a type of treatment that will provide years of pain reduction, although additional treatments may eventually be necessary if the pain should happen to intensify or return.

An additional option to joint replacement

There are other options that are available for individuals who are suffering from joint pain. One of those options is the Neuro E-Stim, an FDA approved device which can limit the amount of pain signals that are being transmitted to the brain substantially. This device is used on a temporary basis to establish the fact that it is going to work in reducing the pain that you are experiencing. Part of the device is then inserted under the skin so that direct stimulation of the spine can occur, which will limit the transmission of pain signals to the brain. It includes a remote control, which can control the part of the spine that is being stimulated and how much stimulation is being experienced.

You can discuss the possibility of using the Neuro E-Stim to reduce the chronic pain that you are experiencing. It is non-narcotic in nature and the process is reversible, producing benefits for those that want to use it on a temporary basis or if for some reason, it ever needs to be removed.

A look at cooled RF technology for back pain

reduce hip pain with cooled rfIf you are somebody that suffers from chronic back pain, there are procedures that are available which are noninvasive and can help to reduce the amount of pain that you are experiencing. One advancing technology that is now being used in many medical practices for the reduction of back pain are cooled radiofrequency (RF) treatments. These types of treatments make use of a specialized radiofrequency probe that produces a lesion size that is larger than standard radiofrequency treatments. Because the lesion is larger, a larger area is able to be treated.

Cooled radiofrequency technology can be used for a number of different treatment options when it comes to chronic back pain. The sacroiliac joint is a common area that is treated with this technology and it is one that is responsible for much of the lower back pain that people experience on a chronic basis. When cooled radiofrequency technology is used in the area, it limits the amount of pain signals that are being transmitted from the sacroiliac joint and can significantly reduce your pain levels. This type of treatment may also be used in the thoracic facet joint as well.

Other treatments along with cooled RF technology

Another treatment option that you may want to consider for reducing chronic spine pain is the use of a Neuro E-Stim. This device requires a minimally invasive surgical procedure to implant the stimulators on your spine which will transmit the signals and reduce the pain that you are experiencing. Pain is a sensation that travels from the area of discomfort to your brain and it is interpreted in the brain as the discomfort that you are experiencing. By stimulating the spine in various areas, it can help to reduce the pain and limit the problems that are associated with it.

Both cooled RF technology and the Neuro E-Stim are minimally invasive procedures that carry a limited amount of risk when they are utilized. The Neuro E-Stim is a FDA approved, non-narcotic device that is reversible. You can discuss this device and the possibility for other treatment options with your doctor to see which is going to work for you and your specific needs.

In either case, you can use the Neuro E-Stim to produce pain relief and to help limit the chronic problems that are often associated with spinal issues

The Neuro E-Stim is an electrical device that is attached to the spinal column and produces electrical signals that limit the pain signals that are being transmitted to the brain. The device does produce sensation in the area, but it is often perceived as a tingling, known as paresthesia, which is similar to what is felt when you use a tens unit. That electrical signal blocks the pain and although the pain signals are still being transmitted to the brain, they are not perceived as such by the brain. When you have had failed back surgery, it may be able to help limit the pain that you are still experiencing so that you can lead your day-to-day life in an appropriate manner

A Look at the Trial System

The lease produce stimulation to the spine and a remote control device allows you to adjust the amount of therapy that you are experiencing. It also allows you to control the area of the spine that is being stimulated and it does so without the use of cords, which is very convenient

The Neuro E-Stim produces non-narcotic pain relief

neuro e stim is non narcoticOne of the issues that are associated with many treatments for pain is the fact that it uses a narcotic medication that has many side effects which are associated with it. Some of those side effects could be dangerous, especially if you are operating heavy equipment or driving a vehicle.

Many of the narcotics that are used for reducing chronic pain cause drowsiness, dizziness and other uncomfortable symptoms. The Neuro E-Stim, on the other hand, reduces the pain that you are experiencing by stimulating the spinal column directly through the use of electrical current. The low-level electrical stimulation that is transmitted to the spine can help to reduce the pain signals that are being transmitted from the area of discomfort to the brain. You may experience some mild tingling when you use the Neuro E-Stim, something that is known as paresthesia, but it is not nearly as uncomfortable as the chronic pain that may currently be a problem.
