Neurostimulators for Pain

If your back and leg pain isn’t responding to medication, your doctor may prescribe a neurostimulator. Neurostimulators work by sending mild electrical impulses to the epidural space near the spine. These impulses replace pain with a tingling sensation. And for more than 30 years they have helped people like you to more fully enjoy life again.
