If you still struggle with pain despite medications, therapy, and less invasive interventional procedures, a spinal cord stimulator may give you the relief you desire. Spinal cord stimulators treat pain from conditions such as diabetic neuropathy, small fiber neuropathy, complex regional pain syndrome, lumbar post-laminectomy syndrome, chronic radiculopathy, and peripheral nerve injury.

Anesthesiologists and interventional pain specialists Todd W. Mautner, DO, and Sameer K. Goel, MD, DABA, at Sunshine Interventional Pain and Wellness Center have years of experience trialing and implanting spinal cord stimulators for treatment-refractory chronic pain conditions.

Ketamine therapy is a non-invasive treatment option that is offered before a spinal cord stimulator trial. This medication "resets" the pain signaling system within the brain, and is very effective at treating nerve pain.

What Are Spinal Cord Stimulators?

Spinal cord stimulators are medical devices that deliver a treatment called neuromodulation or neurostimulation. Spinal cord stimulator lead(s) are implanted in the epidural space in your spine. Neurostimulation uses electrical impulses to scramble or block pain signals going through nerves to your brain. If your brain doesn’t receive the message, you can’t feel the pain. This therapy helps to relieve chronic pain in the back, arms, and legs.

What Types of Pain Are Relieved With Neuromodulation? 

A spinal cord stimulator sends electrical stimulation into targeted nerves in your spinal cord. Pain messages from everywhere in your body travel through the spinal cord on their way to your brain. As a result, a spinal cord stimulator may diminish the pain that begins anywhere in your body, including your neck and back.

A few conditions frequently treated with spinal cord stimulation include:

Your provider may also recommend spinal cord stimulation to ease chronic arm or leg pain caused by pinched spinal nerves.

How Does Neuromodulation Work?

Spinal cord stimulators have three parts: a pulse generator, insulated lead wires, and a controller. Your provider uses a needle-like instrument to guide the lead wires through the epidural space near your spinal cord. 

They place the leads near the nerves relaying the pain signals. Then they implant the generator under your skin, usually near your buttocks, connecting the lead wires to the generator.

Your provider uses the controller to initially program the intensity of the impulse. You keep the controller and use it to turn the generator on and off and change the amount of stimulation.

Can I Try a Spinal Cord Stimulator to See if It Works?

Absolutely. Anyone considering spinal cord stimulation goes through a spinal cord stimulator trial. During the trial, your provider inserts the lead wires, but you wear the generator outside your body.

After using the device for a week, you will know if it relieves your pain well enough to keep it and have the generator implanted.

Am I a Good Candidate for Spinal Cord Stimulation?

You may be a good candidate if you feel better after your trial, have chronic pain despite other treatments, or don’t want surgery (or are not a candidate).

Are You a Spine Surgery Center?

No, we do not perform invasive spine surgery, but we do offer minimally invasive spine procedures in an outpatient surgery center that do not require a hospital stay.
