Ever wonder if there is more to just Gabapentin and Lyrica to your painful diabetic neuropathy? Ever wonder if you can get sensation back in your feet? We now have a breakthrough treatment.
A new randomized controlled trial published in JAMA demonstrated that spinal cord stimulator reduces diabetic neuropathic pain by 76%. In addition to pain relief, neurological function, particularly sensation, was improved in 62% of the patients.
See the abbreviated result below from the article:
