Chronic pain can become debilitating and affect multiple aspects of your life, including your physical health, mental well-being, and overall quality of life. At Spinal Diagnostics, we offer a range of neuromodulation techniques to help you regain mobility.

Neuromodulation involves the application of electrical or chemical stimulation to targeted nerves in the body, altering and reducing pain signals. This innovative field of medicine offers multiple benefits for those living with chronic pain:

  • Targeted pain relief into the nerves responsible for the pain signal transmission
  • Reduced use of opioid medication due to the minimized side effects and procedure pain involved in neuromodulation
  • Improved quality of life, restored mobility and functionality

Whether you're dealing with back or neck pain, arthritis, or any kind of chronic pain, our experienced team is here to help. Our multidisciplinary approach to these conditions helps us create tailored treatment plans for each individual case.

Spinal Cord Stimulation

Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) is a neuromodulation procedure that manages pain signals through the insertion of a small device into the spine. It aims to interrupt pain signals caused by chronic pain conditions, such as failed back surgery syndrome, complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), and peripheral neuropathy. 

This procedure involves the placement of thin wires, known as leads, near your spinal cord, which are connected to a small generator device implanted under your skin. By doing so, electrical pulses can be delivered into the spinal cord, interrupting the pain signals sent to the brain.

The spinal cord stimulation process involves two main steps: the trial phase and the permanent implantation. The first step is the trial phase. Before proceeding with permanent implantation, you will undergo a trial to evaluate the effectiveness of the treatment and determine if it is the right fit for you.

If the trial is successful, the next step involves surgery to implant the permanent spinal cord stimulator. This is done through a minimally invasive procedure that typically requires small incisions in your back and waist.

At Spinal Diagnostics, we offer multiple device options that can provide various styles of therapies tailored to your condition and specific needs.

DRG Stimulation (Dorsal Root Ganglion)

Dorsal root ganglion (DRG) stimulation is a neuromodulation technique focusing on a specific spinal cord region known as the dorsal root ganglion. This area plays a crucial role in transmitting pain signals to the brain. By targeting the DRG directly, this form of stimulation can effectively modulate and alleviate chronic pain. 

Compared to other pain management techniques, DRG Stimulation offers multiple benefits, including:

  • Enhanced targeting: DRG stimulation precisely targets the affected nerve fibers. This precision can result in improved pain reduction.
  • Precise placement: With DRG stimulation, leads can be placed near the specific dorsal root ganglion responsible for transmitting your pain signals. 
  • Reduced side effects: DRG stimulation may result in fewer stimulation-related side effects, such as twitching or buzzing.
  • Improved quality of life: By reducing pain, you can return to your regular activities and improve your overall quality of life.
