Back pain is one of the most frequent health issues experienced by the millions of people of all generations worldwide. This prevalence has inspired the development of many innovative treatment methods. Spinal Cord Stimulation is one of the most popular and most frequently used treatments for back-related pain, and there are several reasons for that.
Spinal cord stimulation uses electrical current to interrupt pain signals of a particular spinal nerve. The device used in this successful pain relief procedure is best described as a small pacemaker implanted into the body close to the spine. Its task is to send electric pulses to the affected area periodically, and continually prevent pain signals from being sent to the brain.
Chronic back and neck pain, Arachnoiditis, and failed back syndrome are just some of the conditions where this revolutionary treatment displayed great results. To determine whether a patient is a suitable candidate for spinal cord stimulation therapy, a thorough examination of the patient’s physical and mental health needs to be performed, including a close survey of their medical documentation and history.
