Nerve pain stimulation has been around since the 1960s, and it remains one of the most effective ways to treat pain without surgery. Chronic pain often comes from misdirected nerve signals, and this process helps correct that issue at the core. Read on to learn how nerve pain stimulation puts you in charge of your own pain.
What Is Nerve Pain Stimulation?
Nerve pain stimulation uses a small electrical device to disrupt false pain signals. Pain is your body’s way of alerting your brain to fix something. “Hey, this is wrong. This hurts. Make it better.” Sometimes, those signals can happen even after the healing is complete. Nerve pain stimulation allows you to turn down the volume of your pain signals so that you can get through the day without immense discomfort.
Your nervous system is responsible for transmitting pain signals to your brain. If you place a nerve pain stimulation device near a malfunctioning nerve, you can block the pain signal from getting to your mind. This may not eliminate your pain completely, but it can turn severe pain into a dull ache. Best of all, you get to be in control of your pain rather than your pain controlling your life.
What Can Nerve Pain Stimulation Treat?
Nerve pain stimulation can be used for a wide range of chronic pain treatments, including the following:
- Hip, Knee, Elbow, Neck, and Joint Pain Treatment
- Degenerative Disc, Lumbar Disc Herniation, and Lower Back Pain Treatment
- Foot, Angle, and Achilles Tendon Treatment
- Muscle and Bone Pain Treatment
- Chronic Inflammation and Nerve Pain Treatment
- Arthritis Treatment
- Sports- and Work-Related Injuries
- SI Joint Dysfunction Treatment
- And Many Other Forms of Chronic Pain
The effectiveness of nerve pain stimulation will depend on the type of injury or discomfort you have, as well as your overall health and existing treatment paths. One of our pain management doctors would be happy to discuss your options to find the best solution for you.
