Dorsal Column Stimulator (DCS) is an implantable medical device used to treat chronic pain of neurologic origin. An electric impulse generated by the device near the dorsal surface of the spinal cord provides a paresthesia ("tingling") sensation that alters the perception of pain by the patient.
Advice & Tips:
Be honest with yourself when doing the spinal cord stimulator (scs) trial. Don't let a doctor talk you into the scs if you don't think it will give you the relief the brochure and doctor tell you.
