Block Pain and Get Back to Your Life with Spinal Cord Stimulation
Block Pain and Get Back to Your Life with Spinal Cord Stimulation – When people begin to think of chronic back pain, they often also begin to think of surgery. It’s a remedy that many turn to, when traditional therapy and drugs come to no fruition. But the invasiveness and the lack of assuredness in surgery’s outcomes leaves many people scared of going under the knife. That’s where doctors and science have come up with a unique solution.
Spinal Cord Stimulation, also called SCS, is nearly 30 years old and was developed as a surgery alternative and as a way to relieve chronic pain. What SCS does is implant a small device in the buttocks that delivers a pulse-like stimulation along a cord. What’s attractive about SCS to many people is that it’s minimally invasive—and delivers relief.
What are the considerations when it comes to SCS? Paying for it, of course, is top of mind, and luckily it’s often covered by insurance. Read more about SCS to discover if it’s right for you or someone you love.
