Dorsal Root Ganglion Stimulation in Bradenton, Sarasota & Venice, FL
Life-Changing Technology for Chronic Pain
Dorsal Root Ganglion (DRG) therapy is a non-opioid therapy designed to manage difficult-to-treat chronic pain in specific areas of the lower body, such as the foot, knee, or groin in patients with Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS). DRG therapy treats patients with neuropathic chronic pain associated with CRPS of the lower limbs. Pain in these areas is sometimes related to a cluster of nerves located on the outside of the spinal cord called the dorsal root ganglia (DRG). DRG was once thought to have no connection to pain, but researchers now know that this nerve bundle plays a key role in nerve pain for CRPS I and II patients.
DRG stimulation therapy involves surgically placing a stimulator that targets the dorsal root ganglion to relieve pain of the lower limbs due to CRPS. Individuals will have a hand-held iPod controller that changes the stimulation settings within prescribed limits. This new technology has made a significant difference in the treatment of chronic pain. Patients with chronic pain in a lower limb from CRPS experienced superior pain relief after one year with DRG stimulation.
