Spinal Cord Stimulation/Neuromodulation
A spinal cord stimulator or a neurostimulator is a surgically placed device about the size of a stopwatch. It delivers mild electrical signals to the epidural space near your spine. It doesn’t cure pain, but helps manage it.
How it works
- Pain Signal
- Device delivers mild electrical signals to the epidural space near your spine through one or more thin wires, called leads.
- The pain signals, now masked as a smooth tingling sensation, travel to the brain.
