When it comes to back and leg pain, that is something that no one ever wants to have to think about or ever actually have to go through. However if you are suffering from back or leg pain there are some things that you can do to help ease the pain. This article offers you the insight into how superior back and leg pain can be relieved through high frequency spinal cord stimulation.
- Results of a clinical trial comparing high frequency spinal cord stimulation and low frequency spinal cord stimulation show that people with intractable back or leg pain benefit most from high frequency stimulation.
- The measure of effectiveness was having participants achieve greater than or equal to 50% reduction in back pain compared to their baseline after 3 months.
- For those in the study with back pain, more than 84% using high frequency SCS therapy achieved the endpoint.
