Neuromodulation is a form of pain relief used to treat and enhance quality of life in patients who suffer severe chronic illness due to persistent pain, spasticity, movement disorders, epilepsy, ischaemia, cardiac, bowel and bladder dysfunction, spinal injury, visual, auditory and specific psychiatric disorders.
Neuropathic pain is generated by nervous tissue itself and is a disordered response to nerve injury of either the central nervous system (spine and brain) or peripheral nervous system (in areas of the body beyond the spine and brain).
Neuromodulation can be effective to modify nerve activity, delivering mild electrical stimulation or drugs to relieve pain or restore function.These treatments encompass a growing variety of methods that target the brain or nervous system at specific locations in the body, delivering mild electrical stimulation or drugs to relieve pain or restore function.
The most common treatment is spinal cord stimulation and the most common indication is the persistent severe neuropathic pain found in those who have had spinal decompression surgery but who have had recurrence or persistence of symptoms.
