Spinal Cord Stimulator
For spinal cord stimulation (SCS) to control your pain, you must have a small system placed in your body. An SCS system looks and works a lot like a pacemaker. An SCS system generates mild electrical pulses and sends them to your spinal cord. These electrical pulses replace the feeling of pain with a tingling or massaging sensation. SCS’s can benefit those who suffer from failed back syndrome and reflex sympathetic dystrophy.
