Often used for back pain, Dr. Kabazie cited a patient with chest wall scarring from surgery who found relief from the device.
"Spinal cord stimulators have been pigeonholed for certain types of pain, but I think they will work for multiple pain states," Dr. Kabazie said.

Regardless of the methods they use to treat chronic pain, Dr. Glick and Dr. Kabazie agreed that patient commitment and involvement in their treatment led to better outcomes.
