Peripheral Nerve Stimulation

What is Peripheral Nerve Stimulation?

Peripheral Nerve Stimulation (PNS) is a treatment designed to help with peripheral neuropathy symptoms. Typically characterized by weakness, pain, or numbness in the hands and feet, this condition occurs when the nerves that connect the brain and spinal cord to the rest of the body are damaged.

PNS will send mild electrical currents directly to the nerves outside of the spinal cord in a treatment that can actually help ease the pain and symptoms associated with this condition.

Benefits of Peripheral Nerve Stimulation

PNS is a powerful and effective solution that has been proven to treat the symptoms of peripheral neuropathy symptoms. With proper treatment, patients can enjoy benefits such as:

  • Improved sexual function
  • Fewer issues with numbness and tingling
  • Less sensitivity to touch
  • Better coordination
  • Stronger muscle control
  • Improvement in digestive issues

While many people will start to see an improvement in their overall quality of life, pain relief is perhaps the most common benefit of this treatment—and the reason patients most commonly seek out PNS.
