Peripheral nerve stimulation aims at relieving chronic pain produced by target nerves. The treatment option is a good alternative for patients looking for minimally invasive procedures to relieve pain that is disrupting their lives. Read on to learn more about the StimQ PNS system, which is a PNS treatment option offered by the Pain Center in Boise
StimQ PNS system is an implantable neurostimulator that relieves chronic pain of peripheral nerve origin. This device utilizes wireless RF power to provide electric impulses that block pain signals from reaching the central nervous system.
The perk of the system is that it is minimally invasive; thus, patients can self-treat their pain at home. The disadvantage is the external battery, cables, and connectors that may need a sleeve under clothing, but are easily concealed.
When therapies such as narcotic pain medications, cortisone injections, acupuncture, or anticonvulsants have not given you satisfactory relief, a doctor recommends you as a candidate for StimQ PNS Treatment. StimQ system is used to treat the following:
A StimQ PNS system treats persistent pain by targeting peripheral nerves in your body that send pain signals to the brain. It may be the suprascapular, brachial, plexus, femoral, sacral, scrotal, pudendal, sciatic, intercostal, ulnar, median, or radial nerves.
Before the device is permanently implanted, a trial period of 3-7 days is required to determine its effectiveness in relieving pain. Once patients have cleared the trial period, a permanent device is installed. Pain relief is then within the control of the patient who can change its level of comfort based on what they are feeling. Many people have reported an immense improvement and satisfaction with being able to reduce the need for medications and take charge of their own well-being.
