Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS) is one of the most effective therapies that I use to treat patients with failed back surgical syndrome also called post-laminectomy syndrome. This is a problem when pine surgery does not work to treat back pain and causes nerve damage pain.
I also use it to treat complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) formerly called reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD).
Please watch these videos about this effective and safe therapy.
