More than 10,000 patients around the world have spinal cord stimulator implants. Spinal Cord Stimulation is a process that uses electric stimulation to the nerves surrounding the spinal column, so as to minimize pain.
The procedure dates back to 1960s and was been approved by FDA in 1989. The main purpose of spinal cord stimulation is to direct electrical pulses, which interferes with the pain signals from reaching the brain. In medical terms, it is also known as neurostimulation.
Usually, neurostimulation involves the use of a small device, which is implanted close to the spine and is responsible for generating the pulses. In many ways, it has some similarities with the pacemaker that’s used for the heart. The treatment is also used for treating complex regional pain syndrome too in some cases.
