About Nerve Stimulation

Often offered as a treatment for chronic pain, peripheral nerve field stimulation involves the placement of electrodes to affected nerves in the area that pain is occurring. After being connected to an external device, the electrodes will administer electrical pulses to the area to alleviate pain and discomfort. Several chronic conditions can be treated with peripheral nerve field stimulation based on your specific symptoms and medical history. Our team of pain management experts at Tricity Pain Associates provides this innovative procedure for our patients to help them live more comfortably while receiving long-term outcomes. Contact our San Antonio, TX facility to learn more and to schedule an initial consultation with one of our skilled physicians.

Nerve Stimulation Treatment

Performed with a local anesthetic, peripheral nerve field stimulation starts with the use of x-ray guidance for the positioning of electrodes over the affected areas. Through an attached device, electric pulses will then be administered through the electrodes. For some patients, they will need to keep the temporary device for around a week to experience results. If noticeable results occur, then a permanent device may be put into place for more long-term alleviation of pain. Though the outcomes may vary between patients, peripheral nerve field stimulation has about a 40% rate of success.
