Spinal Cord Stimulation is the electrical stimulation over the dorsal aspect of the spinal cord for the relief of pain. Some conditions that can be effective treated with spinal cord stimulator include:
DRG stimulation is a targeted therapy for some of the most challenging cases of pain in the lower extremities. It targets the neuronal bundles called dorsal root ganglion in the spinal cord. Traditional spinal cord stimulation does not always provide adequate relief in the distal extremities and the DRG stimulator is much more specific for the affected body part. Conditions that can be effective treated with spinal cord stimulator include:
Peripheral nerve stimulator uses electric current to relieve pain in the distribution of a single peripheral nerve.
Some conditions that can be treated with peripheral nerve stimulator are:
