If you are looking for a way to eliminate pain so you can return to normal activities with an improved quality of life, it may be time to consider spinal cord neurostimulation. At Marion Pain Management Center, we offer this advanced pain management technique to the residents of Marion County, Ocala and The Villages, FL.
What is Spinal Cord Neurostimulation?
Spinal cord neurostimulation is a pain management technique that is implanted into the body, and then delivers low-level electrical signals to block nerve signals. This reduces pain that is related to nerve damage, injury and other conditions, allowing the patient to return to a more normal life.
What is Spinal Cord Neurostimulation used to Treat?
Spinal cord neurostimulation can be used to treat a variety of conditions, but is most often used when other treatment methods have failed. If you are not able to achieve the desired relief with other treatments, or have failed to achieve results through surgery, you may be a good candidate for spinal cord neurostimulation.
How is Spinal Cord Neurostimulation Performed?
Spinal cord neurostimulation devices are implanted into the body near the spinal cord in the lower back. During the implantation procedure, we will make a small incision to insert the device. For this process, anesthesia will be used to keep patients comfortable throughout the procedure. After being implanted, the patient can adjust the intensity of the electrical signals to a level that is comfortable to them in order to achieve optimal relief.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Spinal Cord Neurostimulation?
Spinal cord neurostimulation provides long-lasting relief, as it is implanted into the body for permanent use. However, the device can be turned off and/or removed at any time. You may need to take a few days off of strenuous activities after the implantation procedure to ensure that the body heals properly.
