When more conservative therapies have failed, pain management physicians often recommend spinal cord stimulation (SCS or neurostimulation therapy) for chronic pain relief.

SCS technology involves an implantable device that interrupts pain signals before they reach the brain, replacing those signals with a more pleasant sensation. This innovative treatment method has helped thousands of people significantly reduce their pain so they can return to their normal activities.

Dr. Amitabh Goel of Sarasota Pain Relief Centers has a special interest in the field of spinal cord stimulation. He has directly contributed to the advancement of this remarkable technology, having a number of innovative patents on improving the devices used for spinal cord stimulation.

If you live with chronic pain, you’ve probably become something of an expert on the subject. You know about your pain; what activities cause or exacerbate it, what times of day or night to most expect it, what not to do to amplify your pain condition and what methods help to relieve your discomforts.

But because pain is subjective, no one else can know your pain the way you do, and in turn, you can’t possibly know what someone else’s suffering feels like. Everyone experiences pain in different ways, and each individual has their own unique threshold for what they consider to be unbearable or excruciating. Varying factors such as age, gender, mental or emotional state can have significant impact on how a perceives the level of their pain.
