I had this spinal cord stimulator (SCS) implant done in March, and it has given me back my life! Its like a miracle the way it works. Side effects? Yeah. I can walk again. Hows that for a side effect!!
Spinal Cord Stimulator Implant - Spinal cord stimulation (also called SCS) uses electrical impulses to relieve chronic pain of the back, arms and legs. It is believed that electrical pulses prevent pain signals from being received by the brain. SCS candidates include people who suffer from neuropathic pain and for whom conservative treatments have failed. #spine #health http://www.southeasternspine.com/procedures-treatments/spinal-cord-stimulator-implant/
Next step. While spinal cord stimulation does not work for everyone, most patients with chronic pain who qualify for a spinal cord stimulator report a 50 to 70% reduction in their pain, as well as an increased ability to participate in normal family and work activities.
