Hoboken, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/06/2017 -- The Spine & Sports Health Center is pleased to announce that they are accepting new patients interested in spinal cord stimulation (SCS) trial procedures to treat chronic leg and lower back pain. From the beginning, the medical practice has been helping patients find relief from joint and spine pain by utilizing cutting-edge non-surgical procedures and treatment options. The Spine & Sports Health Center offers spinal cord stimulation trial procedures at their office in Jersey City, NJ, Hoboken, NJ, and Bayonne, NJ.
For almost thirty years, SCS has been used to help patients find relief from chronic limb and lower back pain. This procedure eliminates pain through a thin and soft wire that's inserted into the patient's spine. The wire conducts mild electrical currents produced by a small stimulator. The electrical currents prohibit the brain from receiving pain signals from the injured or damaged areas of the spine. Good candidates for SCS regularly consist of those who've had little to no success with conventional pain treatments, or who've had spinal surgery but continue to have chronic pain.
Those who choose to undergo SCS must participate in a brief trial, or test run, with a temporary wire and stimulator to discover whether the procedure will provide adequate pain relief. All non-surgical SCS trial procedures performed at The Spine & Sports Health Center are done in an outpatient setting by Dr. Ben-Meir. The trial procedure generally lasts no longer than 30 minutes, and patients should not only expect to receive temporary wires and stimulators, but also remote control devices that will allow them to adjust the impulses generated by their stimulators.
Follow-up appointments will be scheduled for patients three to four days later where the temporary wires and stimulators will be removed. If they report good pain relief during their trials, they can be scheduled to receive the permanent implants at a later date.
