Differential target multiplexed spinal cord stimulation – a novel treatment approach for chronic low back pain

Takeaway

  • 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.
