How it Works
An implantable neurostimulator is a surgically placed device to deliver mild electrical signals to the epidural space near your spine through one or more thin wires, called leads. Neurostimulation can provide pain relief by disrupting the pain signals traveling between the spinal cord and the brain. In doing so, it works to interrupt your pain before it reaches the brain.
Before committing to the permanent, long-term therapy, a trial is a temporary evaluation period that allows you to experience the spinal cord stimulation and determine if there is substantial pain relief. Instead of a permanent injection, the trial is positioned and connected to you and an external neurostimulator. The implanted neurostimulator can be surgically removed if you do not like it or if you decide to pursue a different treatment.
