Jackson, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/30/2017 -- NorthEast Spine & Sports Medicine is pleased to announce that spinal cord stimulator trials are available to treat neuropathic pain. The medical practice has served the residents of New Jersey for years, and is well-known for the excellent patient care they provide. In fact, those who choose these Monmouth County, NJ doctors for back pain treatment will be pleased to know that they not only offer spinal cord stimulator trials, but a wide variety of other pain treatment options and procedures.
Intended for those who have been failed by more conservative treatments, this procedure works to block pain signals from being sent out to the back, arms, or legs through the use of gentle electrical pulses. The procedure involves inserting an epidural needle or making a small incision in the lower back and placing the stimulator along the spine. The area of the insertion is applied with a local anesthetic so patients should only experience mild discomfort.
This outpatient procedure typically lasts no more than a couple of hours, and patients should also expect to be kept awake so that they can describe what they are feeling to their doctors. Lastly, those undergoing the trial procedure should arrange transportation to and from NorthEast Spine & Sports Medicine as driving is not recommended for several hours after the procedure is over.
