What is diabetic neuropathy?

Diabetic neuropathy is the destruction of nerve function in the peripheral nervous system (outside the brain and spinal cord). It can affect just a single peripheral nerve, called diabetic mononeuropathy, or many peripheral nerves, called diabetic polyneuropathy (DPN). DPN affects both sensory and motor nerves that branch out from the spinal cord and head into the arms, hands, legs, and feet. For some reason, it’s the longest nerves — those that reach from the spine to the feet — that are affected most.

DPN can lead to:

Because it prevents the ability to sense cuts, bruises, or other injuries, DPN can put a diabetic at risk for leg, foot, and toe injuries, as well as the development of slow-healing ulcers and chronic infections.

Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS) for Chronic Pain & DPN:

Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS) is a sophisticated neuromodulation technique designed to alleviate chronic  pain when other interventions have failed. This therapy employs a small device, implanted near the spinal cord, to emit electrical pulses that interfere with the pain signals being transmitted to the brain. Patients can experience significant pain relief and improved quality of life with this modality. SCS is customizable and adjustable to patient-specific pain patterns, making it a versatile option for complex, persistent chronic pain syndromes.

Spinal cord stimulation has proven to be a long-lasting therapy for patients with diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN), reducing pain, enabling greater physical activity, and improving quality of life among those whose conditions are refractory to medical management.

Neurostimulation therapy, which is FDA-approved and covered by most insurance programs, is one component of a multifaceted DPN treatment strategy.

What is Spinal Cord Stimulation and How Does it Work?

Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS) involves a minimally invasive procedure implanting a device that sends electrical impulses to the spinal cord.

These impulses modify pain signals before reaching the brain, alleviating chronic pain and enhancing overall quality of life.

Applications of Spinal Cord Stimulation

SCS effectively manages chronic pain conditions, including neuropathy, failed back surgery syndrome, and complex regional pain syndrome. It serves as an alternative for those with persistent pain unresponsive to other treatments.

Spinal Cord Stimulator Types

Here is an exploration of Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS) devices at Neuro Sciences Centers, where diverse options cater to individuals seeking relief from chronic pain.

Understanding each SCS type is crucial for personalized solutions and enhanced patient outcomes.

Traditional Tonic Stimulation: Involving a continuous low-frequency electrical impulse to the spinal cord, traditional tonic stimulation modulates pain signals, ensuring consistent relief for individuals with chronic pain. It serves as a foundational option in the realm of SCS.

Burst Stimulation: As a dynamic alternative, burst stimulation delivers intermittent bursts of electrical impulses to the spinal cord, mimicking the body’s natural response to pain. This patterned approach provides effective relief for specific conditions, making it beneficial for patients seeking variability in pain management.

High-Frequency Stimulation: Introducing rapid and consistent electrical impulses to the spinal cord, high-frequency stimulation disrupts the transmission of pain signals. Known for precision and efficacy, this advanced SCS type effectively manages various forms of chronic pain, offering a cutting-edge solution for targeted relief.

Each SCS type at Neuro Sciences Centers is carefully selected based on individual pain profiles and preferences.

Our experienced specialists collaborate with patients to determine the most suitable SCS option, ensuring a customized approach to pain management.

Through the exploration of diverse stimulator types, individuals can discover tailored solutions aligning with their unique experiences of chronic pain, paving the way to a life with reduced discomfort and restored vitality.

Deciding on Spinal Cord Stimulator Surgery

Consider SCS if conservative treatments fail to alleviate chronic pain, particularly neuropathic pain in the back or limbs.

Consult our experts at Neuro Sciences Centers for a comprehensive evaluation to determine the suitability of spinal cord stimulation.

Spinal Cord Stimulation Treatment Process

Our approach commences with a detailed assessment of your medical history and pain profile. If deemed suitable for SCS, a trial period with a temporary electrode is initiated to gauge effectiveness.

Upon successful trial outcomes, our skilled neurosurgeons proceed with permanent implantation, ensuring precision and patient comfort.
