Spinal Cord Stimulation

Spinal Cord Stimulation

A Spinal Cord Stimulator (SCS) works to interrupt pain impulses before they reach the brain to help patients manage their pain. Some patients say SCS feels like a gentle fluttering sensation that replaces the pain. The term some would choose is "relief".

SCS therapy can help manage chronic pain — even when other therapies have failed.  SCS therapy has helped over 400,000 people over the past 40 years and is:

  • Proven safe and effective
  • FDA-approved for adults with chronic pain of the trunk and/or lower limbs
  • Offers proven pain management
  • Covered by most insurance plans, including Medicare and most worker's compensation programs

How SCS Works

While SCS is leading-edge technology, it's actually not as complicated as it seems. Your nerves and brain are constantly communicating with each other. And when you feel pain, it's because those nerves are sending a pain signal to your brain. That's where SCS therapy comes in — SCS masks the pain signals coming from your lower back or legs from reaching your brain.
