Dorsal Root Ganglion (DRG) Stimulation
September 09, 2016
A new minimally invasive treatment option is available for those who suffer from chronic pain due to complex regional pain syndrome in their groin, hip, knee or foot. This unique FDA approved approach to pain is dorsal root ganglion (DRG) stimulation. Neurostimulation stimulates the DRG – a cluster of nerve cells in the spine – that directly targets the area of the body where the pain occurs. DRG modifies the pain signals being sent to the brain which results in a reduction of pain. Similar to a spinal cord stimulator, the DRG neurostimulator also has a temporary device for a trial period to determine its effectiveness.
