Severe chronic pain is pain occurring due to severe damage to nerve structures. The strong intensity of pain affects the quality of life to such an extent that the patient is unable to perform normal everyday activities. It is very often associated with mental problems and suicidal tendencies. Pain caused by damage to nerve structures is referred to as neuropathic pain, and is also the most common indication for neuromodulatory treatment.
What does neuromodulatory treatment mean?
Neuromodulatory treatment is one of the most modern therapeutic approaches in modern medicine for the treatment of complicated chronic pain and severe painful conditions, when standard treatment fails or has significant side effects, or when all available treatment options have been exhausted without effect. It is a safe, reversible and non-destructive method with minimal side effects. It brings patients pain relief, reduced need to take painkiller medications, it causes improved mobility, as well as improving the patient’s quality of life.
What solution do we provide for severe chronic pain?
EuroPainClinics workplaces offer neuromodulatory treatment to patients as part of a comprehensive system of minimally invasive and endoscopic back treatment. They operate as specialized diagnostic centers for the indication of SCS neurostimulator treatment and cooperate in its implementation with university hospitals in Slovakia and the Czech Republic.
The SCS (Spinal Cord Stimulation) method is one of the most common methods of neuromodulatory treatment. The principle of treatment is the implantation of a spinal cord neurostimulator. Electrodes are inserted into the epidural space near the spine. Electrical impulses traveling from the electrodes stimulate the surrounding nerves and regulate or block the transmission of pain “signals” from damaged structures to the brain.
