High Frequency Spinal Cord Stimulator
High Frequency Spinal Cord Stimulator treatment is a great advancement in neuromodulation technology. It is similar to a traditional Spinal Cord Simulator (SCS), however it does not cause any tingling or buzzing in the painful area. High Frequency therapy doesn’t give patients an unexpected shock when bending or twisting. This technology can also be left on while driving, unlike other SCS systems.
Like traditional spinal cord stimulation, a trial is performed prior to permanant implantation to determine the effectiveness of the therapy. It can be used in conjunction with current medications and can be removed by the physician, if necessary.
A higher percentage of patients have benefited from this technology than from traditional spinal cord stimulation. A higher percentage of pain relief and buzz- free stimulation have made this technology superior over the conventional stimulation.
