How Do Spinal Cord Stimulators Work?
An important aspect of our treatment process if finding a quality solution that works for your concerns. If surgery is not the right option, then a spinal cord stimulator, or SCS, may be the answer. These devices are implanted direction on your spinal cord and use electrical signals and pulses to alleviate pain.
Most SCSs are controlled by the patient and are used anytime discomfort or pain is felt. These can do a great job at addressing chronic pains, post-surgery spasms, regional pain syndrome, and more. Before any surgery is done, however, you need to consult with one of our doctors first. An SCS may not be right for everyone, and you must reach certain criteria, including responsiveness to therapy and a trial period.
Once that’s completed, a spinal cord stimulator can be used for long-term and ongoing spinal care, giving you immediate relief from your ongoing pain issues.
