Back pain is a highly prevalent problem with a wide variety of potential causes. Fortunately, there are a number of effective back pain treatments that allow patients to avoid surgery while still offering long-term relief. Spinal cord stimulation is one of the more advanced back pain treatments available, and it is discussed in this informative video.
The treatment works by targeting the nerves irritated by a spinal injury or degenerative condition with electrical pulses. When the sensory input is overridden by the electrical pulse of the stimulator, pain signals are not able to be transmitted to the brain, so the patient is more comfortable.
