Evolution of Spinal Cord Stimulation

Treatment of pain that persists after spinal surgery usually begins with non-operative techniques, such as physical therapy, oral anti-inflammatory medications, or steroid injections. If these measures fail, and there are no other clear identifiable causes of the pain, then neuromodulation may be a beneficial option. The concept of neuromodulation is to block pain impulses that are traveling from nerves to the brain. In regards to neuromodulation in the spine, a stimulator is used to send mild electrical signals to a specific part of the spine, which ultimately masks the pain signals.
