UNDERSTAND SPINAL CORD STIMULATION IN A FEW MINUTES

Spinal cord stimulation, also referred to as neurostimulation, is when we can activate parts of the nervous system using microelectrodes connected to a small implantable battery. This uses the same principle as pacemakers that are used to control an abnormal heartbeat, except now we can use these specialised pacemakers to control abnormal nerve function that causes chronic pain.
