OKLAHOMA CITY - It's a pain-relief technique that has a lot of people talking.

Chronic knee pain can be devastating for some patients who have faced multiple knee surgeries or replacements.

For Kerry Lawson, that meant a dependence on pain killers that threatened her career as a professor.

She turned to a technique called Coolief, a non-surgical, non-narcotic procedure that uses cooled radio-frequency energy to target the sensory nerves in the knee that are causing pain.

The result, doctors say, is an end to chronic pain.

Dr. John Nelson, a pain management specialist with Advanced Pain Management of Oklahoma, stopped by the studios to discuss the procedure.

To contact his office, call (405) 702-8623.
