If you suffer from chronic pain in your extremities or back, spinal cord stimulation (SCS) offers a non-surgical, drug-free solution. SCS prevents the brain from processing pain signals, and you can even have the device implanted for fast, convenient relief you control remotely.

When other management methods fail, you can come to Advanced Pain Medical Group for alternative ways to regain quality of life. Our practice has board-certified physicians with many years of education and training in the field.

What Is Spinal Cord Stimulation?

Spinal cord stimulation involves using thin wires called electrodes and a battery pack to treat chronic pain. Qualified physicians apply electrodes between the vertebrae and spinal cord under the skin. Typically, that means positioning them near your abdomen or buttocks. You can turn on the device using a remote control to receive electrical impulses that block signals from reaching the brain.

How Does It Work?

Doctors still don’t fully understand why spinal cord simulation works. However, the process may alter the way your brain detects pain signals. Additionally, it can directly impact multiple muscle groups for extensive relief. The physicians who install these devices are well-established and trained in interventional pain management.

Our staff carefully evaluates each candidate to ensure a good fit. Our specialists perform a full exam, including a psychological screening. The outcomes vary depending on several factors but particularly benefit the individuals who meet these criteria:
