Spinal cord stimulators are proven to provide a patient with long-term relief. In short, these devices are implanted in the body and are constructed to disrupt pain signals that travel between the spinal cord and the brain. When this is achieved, patients report a significant relief in their pain levels. Individuals who qualify for these devices suffer from severe chronic pain caused by RSD and even post-laminectomy syndrome (failed back surgery).
Benefits of having a spinal cord stimulator include:
- Improved function and mobility
- Personalization- you control the stimulation pulses on your device
- A decrease in pain medications
- Completing day-to-day activities
