Are you searching for premier back pain doctors in and around Union, NJ, who can help you find relief from chronic leg and/or lower back pain? Well, we here at Redefine Healthcare are proud to offer a multitude of effective treatment options and procedures to help patients suffering from chronic pain. One particular pain treatment option that you might want to consider to find sufficient relief is spinal cord stimulation (SCS).
Simply put, SCS is a pain treatment option that involves using mild electrical pulses (sent by a wire stimulator and a small generator) to prohibit the spine from sending pain signals to the brain. Specifically, the procedure involves inserting a permanent wire and generator implant into the patient’s body to alleviate any pain.
In addition to helping those with chronic leg or lower back pain, it has also been used to treat:
Those who’ve found little pain relief from injections, medications, physical therapy, or even surgery itself, have also opted for SCS.
First and foremost, all patients who are considering SCS must undergo a trial procedure to see if a temporary wire implant and generator will offer sufficient pain relief. The trial procedure is a same-day procedure, non-surgical, requires a local anesthetic and/or mild sedation, and is usually completed in under 30 minutes. After the procedure is complete, you will be scheduled to return to the office three to five days later where your doctor will discuss with you whether you experienced adequate pain relief. If you did find pain relief, you will be scheduled to receive the permanent implants at a later date.
It’s important to remember that you should always consult with medical professionals like our back and neck pain doctors in Union, NJ before making a decision about the kinds of care that may be most effective for you. In fact, our medical professionals always work closely with patients to find pain treatments and solutions that fit their lifestyles and medical situations.
