Spinal Cord Stimulator Implants

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.

 

Our Pain Specialists will determine if you are a candidate for a Spinal Cord Stimulator or Neurostimulation.  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.
