Decrease Pain With A Spinal Cord Stimulator Implant

If other non-invasive treatments and injections fail to provide relief for you, we may recommend a Spinal Cord Stimulator implant for you. These devices are surgically implanted and deliver neurostimulation to your nerves which interferes with the pain signals that they are carrying.

Contact our offices today to find out if this device may be right for you.

How The Pain Is Reduced

Rather than eliminate the source of pain, the mild electric current from the device modifies the way your body perceives the pain. This current does create a small tingling sensation that some patients find uncomfortable. Therefore, a trial stimulation is always performed prior to full implantation so that you may judge how the device will affect you. Our goal with this procedure is pain reduction within a range of 50 to 70%. However, even a moderate amount of pain reduction may prove beneficial if it allows you to return to your daily activities without your previous crippling pain.

"Dr. Chen and his staff are very professional and they paid attention to every detail to treat my injury. The follow-up visits are very well-arranged and are effectively reducing my pain. I had great experiences throughout the visits, including the front office receptionist for making appointment, acupuncturists, and physical therapists. I am still continuing my treatment there right now. I will refer Dr. Chen to anyone who needs pain management treatment (sports injury, accident-caused injury, or chronic pain) without hesitation."
