Spinal Cord Stimulation
Spinal Cord Stimulation is the most technological way to achieve pain relief. It changes how you perceive pain by giving the brain feedback that decreases pain. There is a "Trial" procedure where temporary stimulator leads are inserted so you can take a few days to see if this procedure will help your pain. Please see the video below. If it helps >50% of your pain and you want to have this relief permanently , the next step is surgical implantation of the "permanent" stimulator. The the second video below.
