Neuromodulation Therapy Helps Relieve Pain for Military Veteran

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.

After undergoing the amputation of a limb, patients may experience Phantom Limb Pain (PLP), a neuropathic condition in which pain is perceived as emanating from the amputated limb. This condition is difficult to treat using common pharmaceutical options, which are often ineffective or unbearable for the patient.

In search of an alternative solution for PLP and other pain-producing conditions, clinical trials were conducted to study the effects of Dorsal Root Ganglion (DRG) Stimulation therapy in patients experiencing pain. While the results varied between different clinical studies and patients, common consensus found that DRG Stimulation can be an effective tool in the treatment of pain arising from PLP and other conditions, with a high average of pain reduction in a majority of patients.

Dr. Attias has been practicing specialized pain management in Palm Harbor for nearly a decade, and he was one of the first physicians in the area to begin offering an opioid-free alternative treatment after it was approved by the FDA in 2015: Spinal Cord Stimulation.

Since that time, he has seen patients’ lives improved dramatically due to this alternative treatment that eliminates the need for addictive pain medications by way of a battery-operated device that's implanted into the patient to control pain through constant electronic impulses directly into the nerves.

Dr. Attias asserts that opioids are ineffective in treating long-term chronic pain due to tolerance build-up and the potential for addiction, whereas the alternative spinal cord stimulation treatment enables patients to feel only relief, without the side effects of opioid medications.
