Spinal Cord


Neuromodulation therapy for the treatment of chronic pain

Spinal Cord Stimulation

Spinal cord stimulation, or neuromodulation, can be an effective alternative or adjunct treatment to conventional therapies such as medications and physical therapy.

An implantable spinal cord stimulator uses small electrical signals delivered through electrode leads which are implanted within the epidural space. Pain signals that pass the area are disrupted and inhibited before they can reach the brain. There are a number of potential benefits which have been established with extensive use and testing.
Published studies have demonstrated that when used in carefully selected patients spinal cord stimulation can significantly improve long term pain relief, improve quality of life and reduce disability.1

Some Representative Medical Studies


Could a spinal cord stimulator help me manage my pain?
To assess whether you could benefit from a spinal cord stimulator you would first need to be assessed by one of our pain specialists. They will work with you to determine the nature and cause of your pain and whether neuromodulation could help you manage it.
What are some of the common conditions that are managed with a spinal cord stimulator
SCS treatment is used for a variety of pain conditions. These include chronic pain that occurs after surgery, radiating pain from the back and nerve pain.
