Peripheral Nerve Stimulators

(To Dial Down Chronic Pain)




What is a Peripheral Nerve Stimulator and how can it help patients relieve their foot pain through a “Bluetooth” stimulation device.

How do neurostimulators work?

A neurostimulator is a small, implantable device that is placed under the skin where nerve pain is generated. The device sends electrical pulses to the nerves in the lower extremity which helps block the pain signals from reaching the brain.

Who is a good candidate for a Neurostimulator?

Neurostimulators are a good option for people with chronic pain who have not found relief with other treatments, such as medication or physical therapy. It is also a good option for people who want to avoid the side effects of medication or who are not candidates for surgery.

Here are some additional details about neurostimulators:

  • The procedure to implant the device is done on an outpatient basis.
  • The device can last for up to 10 years.
  • The device is generally well-tolerated.

If you are living with chronic pain from diabetic neuropathy, this may be a treatment option that can help you find relief.
