Living with Chronic Neck or Back Pain?
Finding a solution for managing chronic pain can be difficult. Likely, you and your physician may have developed a treatment plan

may have worked at first. But they may not offer lasting pain relief or may be causing unwanted side effects.
Schedule an appointment today to discuss:
- Why would my doctor recommend neurostimulation?
- How does neurostimulation work?
- How do I know if neurostimulation is right for me?
- How do I prepare for the evaluation period?
