Spinal Cord Stimulation

Patients with chronic back pain or intractable pain in the arms or legs may find relief through spinal cord stimulation.

What Conditions Does Spinal Cord Stimulation Treat?

A spinal cord stimulator may be used for chronic pain in the arms, legs and back when more traditional treatments have not brought relief. The stimulator for back pain is used to prevent the pain signals from reaching the patient’s brain by sending small electrical pulses to the affected nerves.

These types of neuromodulation devices have been used to treat

Talk with one of our highly skilled pain specialists to see if you might be a candidate for this type of back pain treatment or nerve pain management solution.
