Chronic Pain : Dr. Hellman & Dr. Sarna : Studio 512
Dr. Sarna and Dr. Hellman talk about Spinal Cord Stimulation. SCS has actually been around for decades. It’s been used to “jam” or block pain signals to the brain. This can result in paresthesia, which is the sensation of tapping or pressure. With recent scientific advancements, Burst Technology has become available, which does not produce paresthesia. It affects both the medial and the lateral areas of the brain, so it not only relives pain, but also the anxiety and depression that often accompany chronic pain. Some patients have reported 80-90% relief within days of beginning Burst Technology treatment.
