The Pain Center in Boise is proud to offer our patients a revolutionary way to relieve pain: the SPRINT Peripheral Nerve Stimulation. SPRINT is a safe and effective treatment that provides long-term pain relief with minimal risk as an alternative to medication.
This breakthrough technology has changed the lives of tens of thousands of people who can now take control of their pain and get back to participating in life's activities with ease and comfort. Our staff at The Pain Center are committed to providing our patients with cutting-edge solutions like the SPRINT Peripheral Nerve Stimulation device so they can lead more active, fulfilling lives.
SPRINT is an optional peripheral nerve stimulation device that provides sustained pain relief. It marks an innovative shift in pain treatment methods. The SPRINT PNS system is a 60-day treatment designed to provide a minimally invasive and drug-free alternative for patients seeking to relieve chronic pain.
In the procedure, a microwire is implanted near the nerve, transmitting pain-neutralizing signals. One end of the lead is connected to an external pulse generator that allows the user to control the stimulation. SPRINT PNS sends electric impulses to the nerve to block it from transmitting signals to the brain. After the treatment trial, the system is removed, and the patient can live a pain-free life for some time.
The SPRINT PNS procedure is a good alternative for patients who have sought conventional pain relief methods such as over-the-counter analgesics, opioids, or physical therapy without satisfaction.
It has been shown to help patients experiencing:
The benefit of the system is that no incision is required; thus, the patients can go home right after the procedure. A SPRINT PNS does not require permanent implantation as it is removed after 60 days of therapy. The procedure risks are low and fully adjustable depending on the patient's needs. Research studies have shown promising outcomes of SPRINT PNS, with approximately 72% of patients reporting sustained pain relief. In addition, the system has been ranked more effective than opioids, ablation, and injections.
The SPRINT PNS may be a revolutionary option if you are experiencing chronic pain and have tried several pain therapies without success.
