The Iovera treatment takes advantage of the body’s response to cold treat peripheral nerves and reduce pain. This treatment is FDA cleared to block pain by creating a cold zone underneath the skin. The treated percutaneous nerves are temporarily blocked from sending pain signals. Iovera can be used to help with the recovery phase following hip replacement.
