Spinal Cord Stimulators
Managing pain well can lead to a more active lifestyle. A spinal cord stimulator can be an effective tool in helping you get back to your everyday life.
Spinal cord stimulators are inserted through a simple surgery. Candidates are patients whose pain has not responded to more conservative therapies. A stimulator is a battery powered generator that sends electrical impulses to the specific area generating pain. By interrupting pain signals, the body experiences a slight tingling sensation in its place. This reduces many patients need for pain medication and allows them to resume more normal life activities with less discomfort.
We utilize trial stimulations to help you and our physicians make informed decisions. We work together to achieve the lifestyle that you hoped for without being hindered by chronic pain.
