How Does a Spinal Cord Stimulator Implant Work?
Spinal Cord Stimulator Implants, referred to as a Spinal Cord Stimulator or Neurostimulation, works by intercepting pain signals before they reach the brain.
To do this, a small system is implanted within the body by our trained physicians and monitored for optimal results and relief.
This system, similar to a cardiac pacemaker, is used to replace pain with a different feeling which creates a new method for treating pain.
Some people describe this feeling as a gentle massaging sensation or, in some cases, simply the absence of pain.
Pain signals travel up the spinal cord to the brain.
A generator sends pulses to a lead (a thin wire).
The lead delivers these pulses to nerves along the spinal cord.
The pulses block the pain signals before they reach the brain.
The painful feeling is replaced with a more pleasant sensation.
You may be a candidate if you have:
Chronic pain in the back, neck, arms, or legs that has lasted at least six months.
Neuropathic pain (pain marked by burning, tingling, or numbness).
Little or no relief from surgery or other treatment options, such as pain medications, nerve blocks, or physical therapy.
