Spine Care Partners prides itself on delivering world-class care through our collaborative treatment approach. Using our combined expertise, we provide various neuromodulation therapies. Neuromodulation alters nerve activity by applying electrical pulses to a targeted area to stimulate a biological response.
Neuromodulation is effective similar to the way that a cardiac pacemaker can correct an abnormal heartbeat. However, instead of regulating the cardiovascular system, neuromodulation helps to establish normal function of the nervous system.
Spinal Cord Stimulation
Spinal cord stimulation sends low-voltage electrical pulses to the spinal cord to block pain and reduce discomfort.
Dorsal Root Ganglion Stimulation
Dorsal root ganglion stimulation is a method of pain management that targets small, specific groups of neurons in the spine to improve chronic pain.
Peripheral Nerve Stimulation
Peripheral nerve stimulation mitigates pain by sending an electrical current to the peripheral nerves, which serve as pathways between the brain and parts of the body.
Who Qualifies for Neuromodulation Treatment?
Neuromodulation therapies can be used to enhance the quality of life for patients who suffer from conditions of the nervous system, such as:
- Movement disorders
- Bowel and bladder dysfunction
- Spinal injuries
- Visual and auditory psychiatric disorders
- Chronic pain
