New information on Spinal Cord Stimulation

Med­ical instru­ment man­u­fac­tur­er Medtron­ic have devel­oped a new patient infor­ma­tion web­site with detailed guid­ance for peo­ple inter­est­ed in Spinal Cord Stimulation.

Although NICE has approved this treat­ment for cer­tain pain con­di­tions, very few peo­ple in the UK have been fit­ted with stim­u­la­tors. It is impor­tant that both patients and doc­tors become more aware of this option so that peo­ple in pain can be offered the most appro­pri­ate treat­ment for their condition.

The new web­site pro­vides detailed infor­ma­tion about spinal cord stim­u­la­tion and allows you to self-assess for whether it could be an appro­pri­ate treat­ment for you.

Dis­claimer: Please note that Pain Con­cern can­not rec­om­mend treat­ments and accepts no respon­si­bil­i­ty for the con­tent of exter­nal websites.



Inter­est­ing reading!.

I have suf­fered from nerve pain in my back for 11 years for which I take Lyri­ca twice a day which helps but some­times the pain is very bad and I have to up the dosage. I get pain when I sit in the same posi­tion for too long and I also get pain when sit­ting against a cush­ion. I wear a patch on my back when I go to bed at night and this also helps.
My nerve pain is a result of a very rear con­di­tion called Chairi 1 and and Syringomelia which I under­went surgery for ’ decom­pres­sion ’ ten years ago.

I would be very inter­est­ed to receive your news letter
