Who is SCS for?
Is SCS right for you or your loved one? If you suffer from chronic neuropathic pain, a SCS system may be the right choice. SCS therapy is often considered when medications or surgery are not an option or when the side effects of your current therapy are impacting your quality of life. SCS therapy can be personalised to deliver the lasting relief you need — where and when you need it.
It is important to understand what type of pain you have as SCS is only effective for chronic neuropathic pain. This pain is often difficult to diagnose, it can include pain in the back, limbs and feet, or a combination of different pain areas. A pain management specialist can tell you if SCS therapy may be right for you.
