The stimulator interrupts pain signals before they reach the brain, reducing pain and improving function.
When you feel pain, it’s because nerves are sending pain signals to your brain. Spinal cord stimulation interrupts these pain signals so you don’t perceive them as pain. The goal of spinal cord stimulation is to:
Reduce pain by at least 50%
Improve mobility and allow daily activities
Reduce the need for pain medication
Allow patients to relax and sleep better
