Abstract

Diabetes mellitus remains a public health problem, affecting 422 million people worldwide. Currently, there is no consensus around treating painful diabetic peripheral neuropathy in a step-wise manner. Among the non-pharmacological interventions, neuromodulation has become a promising alternative. Over the past decade, significant clinical trials have paved the way for prompt inclusion of high-frequency spinal cord stimulation within the painful diabetic peripheral neuropathy treatment algorithm. This article aims to provide an updated evidence-based approach for the management of painful diabetic peripheral neuropathy.
