Spinal Cord Stimulation
How does Spinal Cord Stimulation work?
Clinical indications for SCS Therapy
Common clinical indications for SCS therapy include:
Failed Back (Surgery) Syndrome (FBSS):
An umbrella term that describes residual pain that persists despite multiple spine surgeries or other interventions - such as spinal manipulation or nerve blocks - to reduce back and leg pain or repair neurological deficits.
Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS):
A syndrome of various symptoms, most often caused by trauma, including burning pain, hyperaesthesia (increased sensitivity of any of the sense organs, especially the skin to cold, heat, pain, etc.), swelling, hyperhidrosis (excessive and profuse perspiration), and trophic changes in the skin and bone of the affected areas. Peripheral nerve stimulation may also be indicated for treatment.
Any disease/disorder of the peripheral nerves.
