Neurostimulation (spinal cord stimulation) for Pain

This relatively new treatment consists of a highly sophisticated, small computer that’s implanted under the skin. It delivers a low-voltage signal through fine wires to the spinal cord, or selected nerves and masks the pain sensation with a pleasant tingling or massaging sensation.

Indications: Intractable nerve injury pain, failed back syndrome, complex regional pain syndrome (formerly known as Reflex Sympathetic, some headaches).
