What is Spinal Cord Stimulation?
Spinal Cord Stimulation is designed to mask pain signals before they reach the brain. This is achieved by implanting a small device, similar to a pacemaker to the area of the nerves causing the pain signals. This small implant then delivers electrical pulse signals through carefully placed leads to the spinal cord to override the pain sensation.
It is worth noting that the stimulation does not eliminate the source of pain, it simply interferes with the signal to the brain and replaces it with a tingly sensation. This is why a trial period is always offered to the patient as the amount of pain relief can vary from person to person and some individuals may find the tingly sensation unpleasant. If successful, Spinal Cord Stimulation has shown to provide a 50-70% reduction in pain.
