One thing about chronic pain, you know it when you have it. Suffering from constant pain, over time, wears you down physically, mentally and emotionally. With modern pain management care, there are several non-medication options. The treatment course that will work best for you depends on the source of your pain and how it is impacting your daily functioning.
Dorsal Column Spinal Cord Stimulation
If you have been suffering from chronic back pain that has lasted for a significant amount of time, and your pain is disrupting your daily life and work, the dorsal column stimulator, or DCS, at Caliber Pain may be a great option to get you back to your life.
The tens unit (neurostimulation system) is implanted into the body; it is about the size of a pacemaker. This device delivers mild electrical impulses that travel from the device to your spine. This outsmarts pain by the impulses reaching your brain before the pain signal can arrive. Not everyone reacts to spinal cord stimulation in the same way.
Dorsal Column Stimulation, or DCS, is a technique used in the management of certain chronic pain syndromes, such as failed back surgery and complex regional pain. DCS aims to reduce the intensity, duration and frequency of pain associated with the above conditions.
