Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS) is implantable technology for the treatment of chronic, intractable pain. It works by delivering electrical impulses, and provides relief by altering the pain signals before they reach the brain. You are able to adjust the strength and area of stimulation using a remote control. When SCS is successful, it should provide significant long term relief, reduce the need for pain medications, and improve function. To determine if you are a good candidate for SCS therapy and permanent implantation, a SCS temporary testing period of the device will be performed first. The opportunity to non-surgically temporarily see if you achieve improvement lasts up to a week and will help determine if this is the right treatment for you.
