Peripheral nerve stimulation is a long-term solution for chronic pain that works by interrupting nerve signals in the body. At The Pain Management Center, we are proud to offer this treatment to the residents of Hamilton, Voorhees and Turnersville, NJ.
What is Peripheral Nerve Stimulation?
Peripheral nerve stimulation is a pain management technique that involves implanting a small electrical device near the peripheral nerves. The device delivers controlled electrical energy to the peripheral nerves, interrupting pain signals that would otherwise be sent to the brain and cause discomfort. Peripheral nerve stimulation allows patients to enjoy long-term relief from a variety of pain conditions, including back pain and complex regional pain syndrome.
What is the Peripheral Nerve Stimulation Treatment Like?
The treatment for peripheral nerve stimulation involves a minor surgery to implant the nerve stimulation device. For the surgery, we will use anesthesia to ensure you remain safe and comfortable throughout the procedure. Depending on where the device is placed, you may have to refrain from participating in certain activities for a few weeks. However, most patients are fully recovered within a month.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Peripheral Nerve Stimulation?
After the implantation of the peripheral nerve stimulation device, you will be able to begin using it immediately. You will be able to adjust the intensity of the electrical signals it emits in order to achieve maximum pain relief. Your peripheral nerve stimulation device can be turned off or removed at any point, but many patients continue using it to maintain lasting relief.
