Spinal Cord Stimulation
Neuromodulation uses implanted neurostimulators to decrease and manage chronic pain when all other less-invasive methods have failed. Neurostimulators work by sending mild electrical impulses to the epidural space near the spine, and interfere with the pain signals being sent to the brain. These techniques can be used to alleviate several painful conditions including chronic back and leg pain, complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), and peripheral neuropathy. Neuromodulation is a long term solution that can provide significant pain relief. Electrical spinal cord stimulators are implanted, and patients control these pulses to only use them when they are needed.
