What is spinal cord stimulation?
An overview of Spinal Cord Stimulation from the Ohio State Wexner Medical Center. The clear video describes, without too much technical language, how SCS works by electrical stimulation of the spinal cord to interrupt pain signals travelling through the spinal cord from reaching the brain. Doctors indicate it is a proven, safe and effective therapy for chronic pain of the neck, back, arms and legs, for example that may occur after failed spinal surgery. A device similar to a pacemaker, but is placed beside the spinal cord or peripheral nerve, is used to deliver mild electrical impulses blocking pain signals.
