Abstract

Spinal cord stimulation was first shown to be an effective treatment for pain 50 years ago. Since then, technology has grown exponentially with multiple options available to both the patient and the provider. Stimulation is now available in a vast range of frequencies; it can be delivered in a tonic or burst pattern and current can be directed at the level of individual leads in an implanted stimulator or even precisely focused on a specific dermatome in a single limb. Pain is still a complex and poorly understood condition; however, spinal cord stimulation can be a successful tool used in its management.
