HISTORY OF COLD THERAPY
Cold has been used to relieve pain since the days of Hippocrates in ancient Greece. Modern cold therapy, or cryotherapy, has been around since the 1950s and is a trusted technology for treating pain. The ioverao system has revolutionized the delivery of cryotherapy. Until now, traditional cryotherapy treatments were invasive, using large complicated machines that ablated (or destroyed) tissue. With the ioverao system, doctors are able to deliver precise, controlled doses of cold temperature through a portable, handheld device. This minimally invasive treatment is safe, and causes no damage to surrounding tissues. By a process called Wallerian Degeneration, the effect on the treated nerve is temporary, immediately stopping pain until the nerve regenerates.
