Differential target multiplexed (DTM) spinal cord stimulation (SCS) may be a more effective treatment option to the traditional SCS in patients with chronic low back pain (LBP).
Why this matters
Traditional SCS often provides inadequate pain relief for people with chronic LBP and more effective treatments are needed.
Findings from pre-clinical studies and a short-term clinical trial in patients with LBP have shown greater responder rates achieved with DTM SCS than with traditional SCS.
This study adds to the body of supporting evidence for the use of DTM SCS in treating chronic intractable LBP.
