About Nerve Stimulation
As an effective treatment for individuals who suffer from chronic pain, peripheral nerve field stimulation includes the positioning of electrodes to nearby nerves in the location in which pain is emitting from. Once they are properly connected to the exterior mechanism, the electrodes will send electrical currents to the affected area in order to diminish pain signals. A variety of chronic pain conditions are able to be effectively treated with the use of peripheral nerve field stimulation, depending on your exact symptoms and medical history. At Tricity Pain Associates, our experienced team of pain management specialists offers this advanced procedure to provide long-term pain relief results for our patients.

Nerve Stimulation Treatment
After a local anesthetic has been administered, peripheral nerve field stimulation will begin by placing electrodes on the necessary areas with the use of x-ray guidance. The electrodes are attached to an external device and then electric pulses are emitted through the electrodes. In some cases, a temporary device will need to remain in place for about a week for noticeable outcomes. If you experience results, then a permanent device can be installed for long-term pain relief. The exact results can differ among patients, but peripheral nerve field stimulation has around a 40% success rate.
