Spinal Cord Stimulator

Clinically treating pain with a spinal cord stimulator (SCS) is an innovative and effective approach for individuals suffering from chronic pain that does not respond well to traditional treatments. This minimally invasive procedure involves implanting a small device under the skin, typically in the lower back. The SCS device sends electrical impulses to the spinal cord, which can modulate and disrupt the pain signals from reaching your brain.

One of the key advantages of SCS is its versatility in addressing various types of chronic pain, including neuropathic pain, complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) and failed back surgery syndrome (FBSS). It can significantly reduce pain levels, improve quality of life and reduce the need for pain medications, minimizing their potential side effects and addiction risks.

The selection of candidates for SCS involves a thorough evaluation by our physician. Once implanted, the device is customizable, allowing you to adjust the stimulation levels to your comfort. Although SCS is generally safe, it is not suitable for everyone and potential risks, such as infection, must be considered.

Spinal cord stimulation is a valuable option for clinically treating chronic pain when other methods fall short. It offers patients a chance to regain control of their lives, reduce pain and potentially decrease reliance on pain medications. Its effectiveness, coupled with ongoing advancements in technology, makes it a promising avenue for pain management at Relieve-Pain and Spine Center.
