What is cryolesion?

Cryolesia is a treatment method that uses low temperatures to reduce pain and inflammation. It is an invasive procedure that aims to temporarily damage the nerve branch responsible for the feeling of pain in a given area of the body. Cryolesia is mainly used for chronic pain that does not respond to other forms of pharmacological or physical treatment.

The purpose of cryolesion is to apply extremely low temperature to stop the transmission of pain signals through the nerve. This process is possible thanks to the use of a special freezing probe, which is introduced into the appropriate area using a small prick or incision in the skin. The procedure is usually performed under ultrasound guidance, which allows for precise location of the nerve and precise administration of a cooling agent.

The use of extremely low temperature allows for precise freezing and damage of the nerve, while minimizing the impact on surrounding tissues. Thanks to this, the nerve can be effectively paralyzed while minimizing the risk of complications and damage to other structures.


The advantage of cryolesion is relatively little patient discomfort. Local anesthesia of the skin and subcutaneous tissue, which is used before the procedure, minimizes the discomfort experienced by the patient. Moreover, the use of a controlled temperature change means that patients often feel relief during the treatment itself.

The course of cryolesion begins with local anesthesia of the skin and subcutaneous tissue, which minimizes any possible discomfort experienced by the patient. This procedure aims to effectively paralyze the nerve by using a freezing probe that is inserted into the target area.

During cryolesion, the temperature around the probe is controlled and systematically lowered. This process freezes and damages the nerve in place. This effect allows you to stop or significantly alleviate pain and symptoms.


To achieve the desired results, the cryolesion procedure is most often performed in several cycles. Repeated application of a controlled reduction in temperature helps ensure effective nerve paralysis. The doctor adjusts the length and number of cycles to the patient's needs to ensure maximum effectiveness and minimize the risk of complications.

Cryolesion is used in a variety of medical fields, including neurology, orthopedics, sports medicine, and surgery. It is used to treat various conditions such as neuralgia, neuropathy, back pain, joint pain and other ailments.


The cryolesion process is performed by experienced doctors who have appropriate qualifications and knowledge in this procedure. Before deciding on cryolesion, it is recommended to consult a doctor to determine the suitability of this treatment method for your specific case.


To summarize, the course of cryolesion involves local anesthesia, introduction of a freezing probe into the target area and controlled temperature reduction, which leads to effective nerve paralysis. This process is repeated in several cycles to ensure optimal results. Cryolesion is used in many areas of medicine and can bring relief to patients with various nervous diseases.

When to use cryolesion?

Cryolesion is primarily an alternative to pharmacotherapy, especially for patients whose long-term use of painkillers may be associated with liver toxicity and burden.


In addition, painkillers may cause various side effects, such as nausea, vomiting, constipation, excessive sedation, pruritus, and hyperalgesia. Cryolesion eliminates these risks because it does not cause liver or kidney damage and minimizes interactions with other medications. All this speaks in favor of cryolesion, because it is devoid of the above-mentioned threats.


Cryolesia can be an effective alternative to thermolesion. Cryolesia and thermolesion are two innovative methods of treating nerve pain that are based on the use of controlled temperature changes. These procedures aim to effectively relieve symptoms by selectively damaging the nerve. Thermolesion uses a similar principle, but controlled tissue heating is used. In this case, the doctor inserts a special probe into the nerve area and heats it to a high temperature, which damages the nerve, which leads to pain relief.


It is worth remembering that the decision to use cryolesion should be carefully considered in consultation with a doctor. Your doctor will be able to assess the benefits and potential risks for each patient individually, taking into account their health status, medical history and other factors.

Advantages of cryolesion

  • may be effective in the treatment of various diseases, such as pain, inflammation, neurological diseases, oncological diseases, mental diseases and diseases of the digestive system,

  • may be less harmful than some other painkillers because it does not cause liver or kidney damage,

  • may be effective in treating patients for whom other medications do not work or work too weakly,

  • may be effective in treating patients with diseases that are difficult to treat, such as multiple sclerosis or HIV/AIDS.

Disadvantages of cryolesion

  • Requires specialized equipment and doctor skills,

  • Cryolesion is not suitable for all patients, e.g. people with skin diseases or blood clotting problems
