Spinal Cord Stimulation
Spinal cord stimulation (also called neurostimulation) uses electrical impulses to relieve chronic pain of the neck, back and legs. Electrical pulses prevent pain signals from being received by the brain. Neurostimulation candidates include people who suffer from failed back surgery syndrome, cervical and lumbar radiculitis, neuropathy, and complex regional pain syndrome. These conditions can be helped by spinal cord stimulation when other conservative treatments have failed.
