Freezing Nerves to Reduce Pain

Can freezing nerve endings reduce pain?  This new medical procedure may be an effective way to treat chronic pain, fibromyalgia, and other related pain disorders. recently covered a story about a scientist who developed a technique to freeze the outer layer of nerves in painful areas.  This technique, which has been tested on 20 patients so far by a New York area physician, has been shown to relieve the symptoms of nerve-related pain for up to two months.  Although this treatment does not completely relieve pain, it reduces the pain by a significant amount.  Eventually the damaged nerves do grow back and the procedure has to be repeated every few months.
