Spinal Cord Stimulation: A Breakthrough Treatment for Chronic Pain

Chronic pain can be a debilitating condition that affects millions of people every year. If you’re one of the many individuals struggling with chronic pain, you may have tried various treatments without success. However, spinal cord stimulation (SCS) may be the solution you’ve been searching for.

SCS is a minimally invasive procedure that involves the placement of a small device, called a spinal cord stimulator, near the spinal cord. The device sends electrical impulses to the spinal cord to interfere with pain signals before they reach the brain, reducing the sensation of pain.

SCS is typically recommended for individuals who have tried other treatments for their chronic pain, such as physical therapy, medication, and injections, without success. It’s a safe and effective option for treating chronic pain conditions such as:

  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Neuropathic pain
  • Failed back surgery syndrome
  • Arachnoiditis

One of the major benefits of SCS is its ability to provide pain relief with few side effects. Unlike traditional pain management treatments, such as medication, SCS does not cause addiction or interfere with the patient’s daily activities. In fact, many patients report an improvement in their quality of life after undergoing the procedure.

The placement of the spinal cord stimulator is typically performed on an outpatient basis and takes only a few hours. After the device is implanted, the patient will undergo a trial period to determine the effectiveness of the treatment. If the patient experiences significant pain relief, the device will be permanently implanted.

If you’re struggling with chronic pain, spinal cord stimulation may be the solution you need to find relief. To learn more about this breakthrough treatment and determine if it’s right for you, schedule a consultation with a pain management specialist at a Family Health West Pain Specialist.
