The most common indications include post-laminectomy syndrome, complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), ischemic limb pain, angina, spinal stenosis, disc herniation spine arthritis, headache, back and neck pain. Neurostimulation can also be helpful regarding the treatment of intractable pain due to other causes including visceral/abdominal pain, cervical neuritis pain, spinal cord injury pain, post-herpetic neuralgia, and neurogenic thoracic outlet syndrome. Experience suggests that, in appropriately selected patients, SCS can produce at least 50% pain relief in 50%-60% of the implanted patients. With the proper follow-up care, these results can be maintained over several years.
