TREATMENT

The ioverao treatment is minimally invasive and can be performed in your physician's office with results you’ll notice immediately.

IS ioverao RIGHT FOR ME?

What kind of results can I expect?

Results from the ioverao treatment can be felt immediately after treatment. When the treatment is applied to a specific nerve, it will interrupt that nerve's ability to send a pain signal, providing an immediate reduction in pain.

How long does it last?

The duration of the pain relief lasts until the nerve has regenerated, which depends on the individual and location of the nerve being treated. In general, nerves regenerate at a rate of approximately 1mm per day1.

Could this replace the need for knee surgery or other therapies?

The ioverao treatment has been performed prior to knee surgery to help reduce pain during the critical weeks2 following surgery. The effect is temporary, helping you manage your post-surgical pain. It does not change the underlying condition for which your physician has recommended surgery or other therapies.

PREPARING FOR TREATMENT

What should I be doing?

Prior to treatment, your physician will discuss any daily medications you take, such as blood thinners or pain medications, as well as your health history and any health conditions you may have. Your physician will provide specific instructions, but there is very little that you need to do before your treatments. You will be asked to wear clothing that is loose or allows for easy access to the treatment area.


AFTER TREATMENT

How soon will I recover?

Most patients experience immediate pain reduction after treatment so please refer to your physician for guidance on post-treatment activities. There is little downtime following treatment, and you should be able to resume your normal activities on the treatment day. There is typically no general anesthesia required, and most patients are able to drive home following treatment if advised by their physician. Side effects are typically transient and comparable to other needle based treatments, such as bruising and tenderness at the treatment site.

Short-Term Recommendations:

Keep treatment area clean and dry during healing.
For soreness relief:
  • Ice may be applied.
  • OTC pain medications (per physician's discretion).

Activities:

Return to normal activities slowly per your physician's discretion. Seek guidance around safe levels of exertion and joint stress.

Long-Term Recommendations:

Seek opportunities for joint rehabilitation and strengthening, if necessary.
Exercise daily for a period appropriate with your age.
Live a healthy lifestyle with focus on weight management.
