Challenges of chronic pain management
An estimated 20% of US adults suffer from chronic pain. Significantly, 8% have high-impact chronic pain that limits life or work activities on a nearly daily basis, according to a report on chronic pain from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.
The process of chronic pain management is long and convoluted, including behavioral, pharmacologic, injections, and surgical options. Unfortunately, behavioral therapies rarely provide sufficient relief and opioids, which can be more effective, are highly addictive. Many patients find relief with injections but the relief can be temporary.
Neuromodulation has emerged as a proven method to target the nerves responsible for the patient’s pain. And, now there’s a less invasive option: Peripheral Nerve Stimulation (PNS) with the StimRouter® Neuromodulation System.
Less invasive neuromodulation for your chronic pain patients
StimRouter is ideally suited for patients with chronic pain of a peripheral origin who are unable to find sustained pain relief with other treatment options such as nerve blocks, nerve ablation, and other temporary treatments.
Consider StimRouter PNS for patients who:
- Desire a more permanent option
- Wish to eliminate or reduce the use of medications
- Not a candidate for major surgery
- Wish to avoid invasive surgery
- Eager to take an active role in the management of their symptoms
- Have chronic pain of peripheral origin, excluding pain in the craniofacial region.
