Spinal Cord Stimulation

Spinal cord stimulation blocks pain signals from your nerves and prevents them from causing pain in difficult to treat conditions.  A spinal cord stimulator produces mild signals that are used to interrupt the pain signals from difficult to treat areas.   A trial is first done to determine how well your pain is controlled prior to surgical implantation.

Spinal cord stimulation can improve pain associated with a number of conditions especially if you’ve tried conservative treatments.  These conditions include:

Sciatica or pinched nerve, Diabetic neuropathy, Complex regional pain syndrome.

One of the unique advantages of spinal cord stimulation is the 7-day trial that allows one to determine how much pain relief they can expect before having a permanent placement.  To find out if you are a candidate for spinal cord stimulation, call Integrated Spine and Pain Services today.
