BBC: Walking Without Pain Thanks to Electricity

According to the BBC, “a mobile phone app is being developed to help patients living with pain caused by damage to their nervous system. The app hopes to play a part in achieving pain relief, for select patients.”

This mobile phone app will communicate wirelessly with neurostimulation systems to improve pain control. This video documents a novel neurostimulation therapy called dorsal root ganglion stimulation, which is FDA approved for the treatment of a neuropathic pain syndrome. This device is currently being used at Jax Spine and Pain Centers to treat patients with this crippling disease.
