Spinal Cord Stimulation

Spinal Cord Stimulation

Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) stands at the forefront of pain management technology, offering hope to individuals suffering from chronic pain conditions. Recent advancements highlight its diverse applications, from restoring arm and hand movements in stroke patients to addressing chronic back pain.

SCS involves the implantation of a device that delivers controlled electrical pulses to the spinal cord, interrupting pain signals before they reach the brain. This innovative approach represents a middle ground between invasive surgeries and conventional pain management techniques, offering a promising avenue for enhancing quality of life for those living with debilitating pain.
