Pain management can be a tricky subject when it comes to finding effective treatments that work for your unique situation, especially in cases of chronic pain. Chronic back and neck pain can be uniquely perplexing and present distinct challenges.
Even surgery can prove unsuccessful when it comes to chronic pain. In such cases (and in cases where patients would like to avoid surgical procedures), spinal cord stimulation serves as an effective alternative that provides relief and improves daily functionality.
Also called peripheral nerve field stimulation therapy, Spinal Cord Stimulation has been shown to be especially effective in numerous cases of chronic pain, improving conditions like neck and back pain, as well as complex regional pain syndrome.
Spinal Cord Stimulation (a treatment now offered by Dr. Rudd-Barnard at California Pain Medicine Center) is showing results in cases where patients are getting zero relief from other surgeries or treatments.
Customizable Pain Relief — Pain is not the same person to person. Injuries and trauma are not created equal, and conditions can differ widely from patient to patient. Conditions can vary and change within a single individual at different times as well. We offer customizable neurostimulation options which can be adjusted automatically to each patient’s distinct movement patterns.
It’s Minimally Invasive and Drug-Free — You won’t have to worry about cumbersome surgeries that can interrupt your life. The relief felt after neurostimulation often results in decreased need for pain medications.
Limited to No Side Effects — Spinal Cord Stimulation doesn’t have the long list of side effects that medications have.
Low Cost Pain Relief — Costs associated with neurostimulation generally compare favorably with other non-surgical alternatives.
We utilize the Proclaim series Spinal Cord Stimulation system, which includes devices which are designed to deliver optimum spinal cord stimulation (SCS) which treats chronic pain, as well as nerve pain that directly follows surgery or injury. The Proclaim™ DRG Neurostimulation System is the first of its kind — the only neurostimulation device approved for CRPS as a comprehensive intuitive therapy experience.
Candidates for neurostimulation include people living with essential tremor, Parkinson’s disease, and additional movement disorders, as well as those living with chronic pain, especially that which occurs in the extremities.
