Improve Quality of Life & Your Need for Pain Medication

This cutting-edge solution offers long-term relief without the risks of opioid medications. A flexible micro-stimulator is carefully placed near the pain-causing nerves and activated by a small wearable antenna. The stimulation effectively blocks pain signals from reaching your brain.

While Spinal Cord Stimulation is most commonly used for back pain, this technology also effectively treats various conditions like migraines, carpal tunnel syndrome, post-surgical pain, knee pain, shoulder pain, and more.
