Back pain that doesn’t go away on its own may be attributed to several factors. Common culprits include:
- Failed back surgery
- Back surgery complications
- Peripheral neuropathy
- More generalized issues determined by:
- An in-depth consultation
- Lab tests
But the good news is, regardless of the root cause, solutions go miles beyond pain relievers and invasive operations.
And one of the many tools that ACELLerated Interventional Orthopedics relies on for addressing back pain is Spinal Cord Stimulation.

Here’s How Spinal Cord Stimulation Works…
The way the Spinal Cord Stimulation works is relatively simple. It’s generally an outpatient treatment that is minimally invasive but can provide a world of relief.
Essentially, with Spinal Cord Stimulation, a small device is implanted just under the skin in a targeted area.
So, this implant delivers slight and virtually unnoticeable electrical impulses that hide or alter pain signals before they reach the brain.
Modern technology has led to incredible advancements in these devices, such as the Stimwave Wireless Stimulator System, which is effortlessly controlled through a Wearable Antenna Assembly that subtly and easily clips onto your clothing.
After you undergo a Spinal Cord Stimulation treatment, the results are far-reaching, and wonderfully noticeable soon after the procedure.
Also, the majority of patients who have Spinal Cord Stimulation report having increased mobility and improved function, drastically less pain, more activity, and a better quality of life.
Best of all, with Spinal Cord Stimulation, patients:
- Reduce the use of opioids or other pain medications.
- Minimize their short-term chances of having to undergo an extensive operation for long-term relief.
