Back pain is a common ailment that can greatly affect one's quality of life. Whether it's chronic discomfort or pain due to an upcoming surgery, finding effective relief is essential. ASCPM, a leading pain management center, offers an innovative treatment called Iovera that can provide much-needed relief to individuals suffering from back pain or preparing for surgery. In this article, we'll explore what Iovera is, how it works, and the benefits it can offer to patients.

What is Iovera?

Iovera is an advanced pain management treatment that uses the power of cold therapy to relieve pain. It is a non-invasive and highly effective solution for back pain and pre-surgical treatment. Iovera targets specific nerves in the body to temporarily block pain signals, providing significant relief for patients without the need for surgery or medication.

How Does Iovera Work?

Iovera treatment utilizes the concept of cryoanalgesia, which involves cooling the targeted nerves to interrupt pain signals.

Here's how it works:

Targeted Nerve Identification: A trained medical professional at ASCPM Pain Management Center identifies the specific nerves responsible for your pain or discomfort. This is done through a thorough assessment and consultation.

Cold Therapy Application: Once the target nerves are identified, the Iovera device is used to apply cold therapy directly to these nerves. The extreme cold temporarily interrupts the nerve's ability to transmit pain signals.

Pain Relief: With the nerve's pain signals blocked, patients experience relief from their back pain or pre-surgical discomfort. This relief can last for several weeks, allowing individuals to resume their daily activities with greater ease.

  • Non-Invasive: Unlike surgical procedures, Iovera treatment is non-invasive. It doesn't require incisions, anesthesia, or a lengthy recovery period.
  • Effective Pain Relief: Iovera offers effective and targeted pain relief, helping patients manage their pain without the need for strong medications.
  • Quick Procedure: The treatment is relatively quick, typically taking only a few minutes per nerve. Patients can often return to their normal activities shortly after the procedure.
  • Temporary Relief: Iovera provides temporary relief, which can be ideal for individuals waiting for surgery or those who prefer a non-permanent solution.
  • Minimal Side Effects: Iovera treatment has minimal side effects, making it a safe option for most patients.


ASCPM's Iovera treatment is a revolutionary approach to managing back pain and pre-surgical discomfort.
