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.

There are 4 Spinal Stimulator manufacturers available currently in the USA. All have their Pro's and Con's. It would be best to research as much as you can using the information you can read ahead of time, then discuss with our doctors which one would be best for your painful condition and your unique needs.  Here are links to each manufacturer for further information:
