For some, traditional neurostimulation therapy provides pain relief at first but stops working over time. Others report increased or unwanted tingling sensations. 1 Today, there are new options.
Neurostimulation therapy is continually improving. Devices have become increasingly user-friendly and therapies have become more refined to improve their effectiveness.
If you answer yes to any of these questions, it may be time to consult your doctor and consider Abbott’s latest advancements in neurostimulation therapy.

The placement of a neurostimulation system requires surgery, which exposes patients to certain risks. Complications such as infection, swelling, bruising and possibly the loss of strength or use in an affected limb or muscle group (e.g. paralysis) are possible. Additional risks such as undesirable changes in stimulation may occur over time. Be sure to talk to your doctor about the possible risks associated with neurostimulation.
