Spinal Cord Stimulator
Spinal cord stimulation (also called SCS pain treatment) uses electrical impulses to relieve chronic pain of the back, arms and legs. It is believed that electrical pulses prevent pain signals from being received by the brain, making SCS an invaluable technology for spine pain treatment. Spinal cord stimulation procedure candidates include people who suffer from neuropathic pain and for whom conservative treatments have failed.
Peripheral Nerve Stimulator
Peripheral nerve stimulation (Sprint System) uses electrical impulses to relieve chronic pain of the effected area. It is believed the electrical pulses can help relieve irritated nerve tissue even after completion of the 60 day treatment period. Evidence demonstrates that even after completion of the treatment period a majority of the patients report continued pain relief.
