Peripheral Nerve Stimulation Treatment Explained

Peripheral Nerve Stimulation Treatment Explained

Peripheral nerve stimulation (PNS) is a neuromodulation technique in which electrical current is applied to the peripheral nerves to improve chronic pain.

In simpler terms, PNS sends electrical pulses to a specific peripheral nerve that is causing pain. This neurostimulation is an excellent option for patients that cannot have surgery or want a non-surgical solution to their pain.

It has proven to be an effective pain management tool and has even eliminated pain in some patients! Read on to learn more about this breakthrough treatment option and see if it may be what you’re looking for.

At ACellOrtho, we want to make sure you’re pain-free, but we’re not looking to jump into surgery.

We’ll take the time to review your history with you and truly identify the cause of your pain so we can give you the best chance to eliminate pain rather than try out different procedures with no results.

PNS has been a useful method for many of our patients! This interventional pain management technique implants a permanent peripheral nerve stimulator under the skin that delivers regular electrical impulses to a specific peripheral nerve causing pain and blocks the messages before they can reach your brain.

Why Do We Love PNS?

We always recommend scheduling a consult to review your unique medical history and needs, but PNS is commonly used to treat:
