Components of a Spinal Cord Stimulator

Do you have chronic, debilitating pain that has lasted longer than 3 months?

Have you tried and failed conservative therapies?

Don’t want to pursue surgery due to risks and long recovery?


Spinal Cord Stimulation might be an effective treatment for you! Let’s break down the different parts of a Spinal Cord Stimulator:

The Generator – A small device that sends out mild electrical pulses, which contains a battery. This is implanted in your body.





The Leads – Thin insulated wires that carry the electrical pulses from the generator to your spinal cord. These are placed in your body along your spinal cord.



The Patient Controller – A handheld “remote control” that allows you to adjust the strength and location of stimulation or even turn stimulation off. Twin Cities Pain Clinic offers all of the leading SCS brands. Ask your provider today to help determine the right device for you!
