Spinal Cord Stimulation is a medical procedure that can be useful in targeting specific nerves to interrupt pain signals reaching the brain. By delivering low or mild electrical impulses to spinal cords or nerves, Spinal Cord Stimulation treatment can be really beneficial in providing pain relief. Dr. Silky Patel, a spine specialist in Houston may recommend using spinal stimulation treatment when your back pain or neck pain becomes unbearable or all other pain treatments have no effect. This effective therapy involves Spinal Cord Stimulator, a device to be implanted near the spinal cord to deliver mild electrical signals and eliminate the pain. The patient suffering from intense back or neck pain can also adjust the intensity of the electric signals accordingly to the severity and frequency of the pain.
Spinal cord stimulators that are implanted beside the spinal cord will have a small pulse generator, wires with multiple leads, a remote control, and a charger. Some stimulators may promote a pleasing or tingling sensation when in use while other devices simply block pain. Spinal cord stimulation in Houston may be an option when most treatment methods have failed to treat chronic back, neck, arm, and leg pain.

Peripheral Nerve Stimulation or PNS is one of the most commonly used treatments when it comes to curing nerve-related pain. This treatment is a little different from Spinal Cord Stimulation in terms of placing the stimulators. The surgery or treatment involves placing a small electric device or wire leads beside the peripheral nerve in different areas of the body, especially the most painful areas. While spinal stimulators are placed on the specifically targeted position near spinal cord to manipulate the pain signals and provide pain relief to the patient. The patients can control or adjust the nerve stimulators and parameters based on the intensity of pain.
In case, you are suffering from chronic hip pain after going through hip replacement (Hip Arthroplasty), peripheral nerve stimulation is the best treatment to consider.
