Hi Maggie,

Welcome to MedHelp's Pain Management Forum. I am glad you found us.

I assume you are referring to the SCS (Spinal Cord Stimulators) when you say "Back stimulatords," is that correct?

The following is front a trusted site:
BEGIN Quote: "......SCS, in the simplest form, consists of stimulating electrodes, implanted in the epidural space, an electrical pulse generator, implanted in the lower abdominal area or gluteal region ............ SCS has notable analgesic properties and, at the present, is used mostly in the treatment of failed back surgery syndrome, complex regional pain syndrome and refractory pain due to ischemia." END Quote

SCS are not a cure. It's a treatment, so I am not sure what you are asking. If you could be more specific instead of a one-line question it would help us, help you.

I'll look forward to your clarification.

Peace,
~Tuck
