If you experience chronic back pain, electrical nerve stimulation is one treatment option that your doctor may suggest. Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) uses a small pulse generator to send electrical pulses to the nerves in the spinal cord. These pulses interfere with the nerve impulses that make you feel pain. In addition to lower back pain, SCS can help certain types of chronic back pain, such as failed back surgery syndrome and complex regional pain syndrome.
