When you struggle with ongoing pain, it can feel like there is no way out. Henry Community Health’s Interventional Spine and Pain Specialist are here with an innovative treatment that can drastically improve your pain experience. Our specialists are experienced and trained in DRG therapy. It uses cutting-edge technology to literally change the way your brain processes pain.
Understanding DRG Therapy
DRG stands for dorsal root ganglion. This refers to a specific nerve cluster that regulates pain signals as they travel to the brain and are processed. DRG therapy, also known as dorsal root ganglion stimulation, involves modifying those pain signals so they are processed differently by the brain. This is a life-changing procedure for anyone who has tried and failed to address their pain with other treatment options.
Effective DRG therapy starts with the innovative DRG neurostimulator system. It consists of three components:
1. Generator: implanted in your body, emits mild electrical pulses
2. Leads: thin insulated wires, carry the electrical pulses to your DRG
3. Patient Controller: handheld remote, allows the patient to control the stimulation, both strength and location
Why Choose DRG Therapy
DRG therapy is ideal for anyone who suffers from chronic regional pain syndrome (CRPS/RSD) or ongoing pain following a surgery or an injury. It is FDA-approved and can be used on a temporary or permanent basis. It is an outpatient procedure which means no need for anesthesia or an extensive recovery period.
