If you suffer from a condition known as Failed Back Surgery Syndrome (FBSS), then Neurostimulation therapy may be recommended to help alleviate your back pain. FBSS affects approximately 40% of patients who have had previous spinal surgery, resulting in new or persistent pain subsequent to the procedure.
FBSS patients may experience:
- Back or leg pain that increases over time due to the building up of scar tissue around spinal nerve roots
- Persistent tissue pain
- Muscle spasm
- Worsening condition with repeated back surgery
Neurostimulation therapy is most often recommended when more conservative pain management therapies have failed.
