"A spinal cord stimulator can help chronic back or neck pain that is persistent and unresponsive to traditional treatment methods. . spinal cord stimulator is an implanted device that delivers electrical impulses directly to your spinal cord. The impulses interfere with pain signals sent by nerves in your spinal cord, bringing relief to your back, neck, arms, or legs. During implantation of the spinal stimulator, your provider places the device underneath your skin and carefully slides the electrodes into the epidural space of your spine. You control the electrical impulses that block pain with a handheld device. Radiofrequency spinal stimulators can help people with extreme pain in several areas of their bodies. This model requires an external attachment to manage the device but delivers the highest electrical impulses for pain reduction."
