You may have heard of spinal cord stimulation before, which is also called neurostimulation. This treatment is offered at Relievus, and can help relieve your chronic pain! It uses electrical signals to reduce the chronic pain felt in the back and the legs.
Candidates for spinal cord stimulation include people who suffer from chronic neuropathy pain or people for whom traditional treatments are not effective. Other indications include chronic back pain, post-surgery pain, heart pain, spinal cord injury, peripheral vascular disease, and complex regional pain syndrome (crps).
It works by inserting an implanted device that regularly sends electrical impulses to the spine to reduce pain. It can reduce the amount of medication needed to treat pain, and improve both sleep quality and quality of life.
This service is offered at our NJ locations and PA locations.
