Back Pain Addison

Back pain can be caused in multiple ways. While most people think age is one, the truth is repetitive movement can wear on the joints of your spine and become sensitive to movement, becoming inflamed. Other sources of muscle fatigue and strain, this is from heavy lifting or incorrect movement while lifting. The last is an injury; this can be anything from an impact to tear in muscles or other internal tissue. With all of those sources, the fatigue/strain and injury can heal, but the pain can still linger. Even though the origin of the pain has gone, the pain itself can still impact your life causing you stress and limiting what activities you choose to participate in. By seeing a pain specialist at Chicago Pain and Wellness Clinic, you can improve your quality of life and join in activities that you use to sit out of.

Spinal Cord Stimulation Surgery Addison

How spinal cord stimulation is achieved is by implanting a small device near the location of the pain. The device contains a small battery and electrical leads that send out pulses of electricity at a low enough voltage that you just feel a tingle. The voltage is also low enough that the small battery on the device can last months before needing to be replaced. The leads are placed around the location of your pain, and over time the stimulation can reduce the pain you feel and eventually eliminate the phantom pain.
