In Florida, Tampa area patients are finding substantial pain relief with neuromodulation therapy, (also known as spinal cord stimulation,) which involves an implantable device that "interrupts" pain signals before they reach the brain. The device replaces pain signals with a more pleasant, soothing sensation.

To date, neuromodulation has helped effectively reduce pain for thousands of patients so they could return to their normal activities. It is most commonly recommended for a condition known as Failed Back Surgery Syndrome (FBSS), which affects approximately 40 percent of patients who have had previous spinal surgery. 

In the case of a recent Brandon, FL patient, 20 years in the military with multiple injuries and surgeries left him with nerve damage and pain.  After thorough consultation and examination, Dr. Bruce Piszel of Tampa Pain Relief Centers recommended neuromodulation therapy for the patient, who experienced significant relief as a result of the treatment.

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.
