Spinal Cord Stimulator

Spinal cord stimulation is used most often after nonsurgical pain treatment options have failed to provide sufficient relief. Spinal cord stimulators may be used to treat or manage different types of chronic pain, including:

  • Back pain
  • Post-surgical pain
  • Arachnoiditis
  • Heart Pain
  • Nerve-related pain
  • Abdominal or chronic pain

How Does It Work?

Spinal cord stimulation therapy masks pain signals before they reach the brain. A small device, similar to a pacemaker, delivers electrical pulses to the spinal cord. It helps people better manage their chronic pain and reduce their use of opioid medications. It may be an option if you suffer chronic back, leg or arm pain and have not found relief with other therapies.
