This area of medicine involves the use of radio signals to either block or modify pain. We have experience with this therapy since the 1980’s but in the last decade, like all things electronic, there have been dramatic advances. This therapy once used almost exclusively for severe pain unresponsive to treatment is now used for moderate to severe pain and maybe appropriately used to reduce dependence on medications. Our program ( the first to use DRG therapy North of San Francisco) uses traditional tonic stimulation, along with the newer therapies of high-frequency (HF-10)stimulation, Burst stimulation and DRG stimulation. Our goal is to match you to the therapy most likely to have the largest impact on your pain.
