Spinal Cord Stimulation and Neuropathic Pain
What is a Spinal Cord Stimulator and How Does it Work?
If you suffer from neuropathic pain and have not responded to conservative treatments thus far, you may benefit from a spinal cord stimulator. Neuropathic pain is most commonly caused by damaged nerve tissue. We offer Houston pain management services including a special device called a spinal cord stimulator. The device is used to stimulate the spinal nerves and spinal cord. By generating a low-level electric feel, it can help to alleviate pain by interrupting the conduction of signals to the brain.
Spinal cord stimulators are often used for patients who have:
- Chronic neuropathic pain
- Severe neuropathic pain
- Diabetic neuropathy
- Reflex sympathetic dystrophy
This procedure is rather quick and is generally safe and effective. We look forward to having the opportunity to meet with you to discuss this treatment and whether it may be right for you.
