Spinal Cord Stimulation (Neuromodulation)

This modern technique utilizes a highly sophisticated, implantable, small computer device. A low-voltage electrical signal is delivered through fine wires to the spinal cord, or selected nerves, in order to block the sensation of pain. This is called neurostimulation (neuromodulation). The neurostimulation system affects the pain-inhibiting fibers, thus masking the sensation of pain with a pleasant tingling or massaging sensation.

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