New Implantable Device Lowers Chronic Back Pain
It Is Used In Case Pain Has Not Improved After A Surgery
There is a new device that can apply spinal cord stimulation for chronic leg pain or back pain if it has not improved after surgery. The device sends high-frequency electrical pulses with the help of a small, battery-powered generation implanted under the skin, which is connected to electrodes near the patient’s spinal cord. If there is a positive result, the patient’s pain is eliminated and he can return to his normal activities. The manufacturers suggest the use of the system if after six months of a spinal surgery there is still residual chronic neuropathic back or leg pain, even with the use of pain medication. Even though the usage of these devices is becoming more popular, they are still expensive. More info click here.
