Spinal Cord Stimulation
Spinal cord stimulation is considered to be a standard treatment for patients suffering from chronic back pain. It works by applying a strong electrical current to the root cause of the spinal pain. This helps in intercepting pain signals and helping ease the pain. It is done for patients suffering from failed back surgery syndrome, severe nerve-related pain or complex regional pain syndrome. Soft, thin wires with electrical leads are placed through a needle into the spinal column, and this emits electrical signals into the spinal region. Through the blockage, it is easy to reach the source of the pain and help treat that. This procedure helps provide relief to patients suffering from long-term back pain or those who have had a failed back surgery and still suffer from pain.
