Edison, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/27/2017 -- Those who are searching for a team of back pain doctors in Clifton, NJ that offer cutting-edge treatment options and procedures should look no further than the Freeman Spine and Pain Institute. In fact, the medical practice is pleased to announce that they are now accepting patients who are interested in spinal cord stimulation (SCS) trial procedures to help them find relief from chronic leg or lower back pain.
For almost three decades, physicians have been using SCS to help patients find relief from chronic limb or lower back pain. The procedure eliminates pain through a thin and soft wire that's inserted into the patient's spinal column. The wire conducts electrical currents generated by a small stimulator which prohibits the brain from sensing pain in the damaged or injured area of the patient's spine. Good candidates for this procedure are those who've had no success with conventional pain treatments, or who've had surgery and still experience pain.
Before a patient receives the permanent wire implant and stimulator, he or she must undergo a short trial run with a temporary stimulator and wire to discover if SCS will offer adequate pain relief. The SCS trial procedure is non-surgical and requires only mild sedation and a local anesthetic. The trial procedures typically lasts no than 30 minutes, and the patient can leave shortly after the procedure is complete.
A follow-up appointment will be scheduled a few days later to remove the temporary stimulator and wire and to discuss whether the permanent implants will prove valuable. To learn more about the SCS trial procedures offered at the Freeman Spine and Pain Institute, or one of the other spine pain management procedures available at their Clifton, NJ office, please call them at 877-710-9324, or make an appointment online.
