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.
