What is Nerve Stimulation?
Nerve Stimulation (aka Neurostimultion) is a form of technology used to act as a pain control therapy, specifically for individuals suffering with chronic pain.
It involves surgery that places an electrical pulse to the affected nerve area sending the pain messages to the brain. It works by actively sending an electrical pulse to one of the peripheral nerves creating the pain sensation, effectively blocking and replacing it with a more manageable light tingling sensation.
It is worth mentioning here that there is normally a trial period where the electrode is connected to an external device and then tested on the patient over the space of a couple of weeks. If the trial is successful and the patient’s pain sensation is reduced, a small generator is then permanently implanted into the patient’s body.
