What are Spinal Cord Stimulators?
Spinal cord stimulators are a minimally invasive solution where a small device is surgically placed under your skin. It delivers mild electrical stimulation to the nerves along the spinal cord in order to minimize the sensation of pain messages to the brain.
Benefits of Spinal Cord Stimulators
There are many benefits of spinal cord stimulation therapy. Those include:
- Minimally invasive procedure
