What is Peripheral Nerve Stimulation?


Your body’s nervous system is made up of your brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nerves. The peripheral nerves are the nerves that extend beyond your brain and spinal cord to your organs and extremities-all the way to your fingertips and toes.

Peripheral nerve stimulation (PNS) targets the nerves that transmit pain signals to your brain. PNS involves a tiny implant a wire about the thickness of a human hair or a group of electrodes about the size of a standard paperclip that delivers electrical impulses, similar to a pacemaker, to the nerve. It works by changing the way your brain perceives pain. The electrical pulses interrupt or change the pain signals sent from the nerve to the brain.

Patients with intractable neurogenic pain often complain of severe and constant pain that is ineffectively treated by traditional medical measures and opioid-based routines. To address this condition there are now implants that reduce pain by targeting the affected peripheral nerve.

It is highly cost-effective and requires only a 15-20 minute out-patient procedure.

The system includes an adhesive applied receiver (removable) that directs the stimulation programs to the implant from a hand-held control.

– No implanted batteries
– Lead designed to reduce migration
– 8 customized stimulation programs that are controlled by patient
– Engineered to accommodate patients who have an active lifestyle

Am I a candidate for Peripheral Nerve Stimulation?


Not everyone with pain is a candidate for peripheral nerve stimulation. There are a couple of criteria you may have to meet to be considered for this treatment.

– The pain will need to be identified as coming from a distinct peripheral nerve.  
– The patient has tried or been considered for more conservative treatments such as pain medications, physical therapy, or nerve blocks.
– Your physician may also suggest a psychological evaluation to identify factors that could affect the outcome of PNS, such as depression, anxiety, and personality disorders. They may recommend you see Marly, our Licensed Mental Health Counselor, before this treatment to determine if you are a fit candidate for PNS.

What is Peripheral Neuropathy?


Your body’s nervous system is made up of your brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nerves. The peripheral nerves are the nerves that extend beyond your brain and spinal cord to your organs and extremities-all the way to your fingertips and toes. Typically people with peripheral neuropathy experience weakness, numbness, and pain from nerve damage, usually in the hands and feet.

A common cause of peripheral neuropathy is diabetes, but it can also result from injuries, infections, and exposure to toxins.

Symptoms include pain, a pins-and-needles sensation, numbness, and weakness.
