Neurostimulation is the use of a battery-powered implant to stimulate parts of the nervous system in order to supersede pain receptors. These devices can reprogram your brain to feel tingly sensations instead of pain signals from your nerves. There are three basic forms of neurostimulation, each of which helps with certain pains or conditions.
Spinal Cord Stimulation, commonly referred to as SCS, is primarily used to deal with chronic spinal or extremity pain. This pain can be due to issues stemming from back surgery, diabetic neuropathy, and postherpetic neuralgia. After spinal cord stimulator implant surgery, new electrical signals are sent to the brain blocking pain receptors.
Motor Cortex Stimulation, also known as MCS, works by changing how the nervous system functions. This helps to alleviate chronic facial or arm pain. This does not cure the problem but allows relief from the pain that is occurring.
Deep Brain Stimulation, commonly referenced as DBS, can treat or improve many debilitating disorders and diseases that stem from the brain. These conditions are the effects of irregular electrical activities in the brain. The implant sends electrical impulses to correct the malfunctioning. For some conditions, vagus nerve stimulation can truly improve your quality of life. DBS is often used to help with epilepsy, tremors, Tourette’s, cluster headaches, dystonia and even Parkinson’s disease.
If you are interested in the use of innovative technology and treatments to relieve debilitating issues related to a defective nervous system or brain, come in for a consultation with one of our neurosurgeons to see if neurostimulation is an option for you.
