Spinal Cord Stimulator
Spinal Cord Stimulator (SCS) is a minimally invasive surgical procedure used to relieve chronic pain in your back, arms and legs. During the procedure our board-certified physicians will insert small electrical stimulating electrodes into the spinal canal. The SCS provides pain relief by blocking the pain messages before they reach the brain. It does this by sending out mild electrical impulses that reach the brain faster than the pain signal can arrive. In other words, it outsmarts your pain and instead of pain, you feel a tingling sensation in the area where your pain is usually felt. The SCS has many advantages do to its high success rate, short recovery time and being a minimally invasive same day procedure.
SCS is typically recommended for those people who suffer from neuropathic pain and those whose previous back surgery has failed.

The entire staff at Performance Spine and Sports Medicine are very professional and the care that they provide is first rate. I have had PT and Chiropractic care in the past and I would rank this organization better in every way. The integrated model of having Chiropractors, Physical Therapists, massage therapists, and physicians under the same roof is very helpful and really facilitates interaction between all of the care providers. I would not hesitate to recommend this organization.
This is my second time at PSSM and the results are great once again. The staff was great and everyone is friendly and warm and most importantly they have gotten me back to pursuing my passion and work once again. I went in for a back problem and now I'm 90% back to normal and working on their stretches to make it 100%. No pain meds!!!!
