This system is similar to a modern day pacemaker.  SCS delivers mild electrical impulses to the spinal cord, causing a tingling sensation in the area of your chronic pain.

How Spinal Cord Stimulation Works

Spinal cord stimulation provides pain relief by modifying the pain messages before they reach the brain. The neurostimulator sends out mild electrical impulses that reach the brain faster than the pain signal can arrive. In other words, it outsmarts your back and leg pain. Instead of feeling pain, you feel a tingling sensation.

Components of the Neurostimulation System

A complete spinal cord stimulation or neurostimulation system includes several components:

  • Neurostimulator – The device, similar to a pacemaker, that sends mild electrical impulses and is usually surgically implanted under the skin in your abdomen or upper buttock
  • Leads (pronounced “leeds”) – Thin, insulated medical wires that deliver neurostimulation to the epidural space near the spine
  • Handheld Programmer – A device similar to a remote control that you can use at home to optimize pain relief based on how your pain is changing throughout the day or during various activities

The neurostimulation system does not make any noise. The spinal cord stimulator may be felt as a small bump under your skin, but does not normally show through your clothes.

Unlike other chronic pain treatments or surgeries, you can experience spinal cord stimulation and see if it relieves your pain before committing to the long-term therapy via a Spinal Cord Stimulator Trial which utilizes a temporary unit prior to receiving a permanent implant.
