Neurostimulation uses electricity to stimulate nerves or the spinal cord to block pain signals. It includes spinal cord stimulation and peripheral nerve field stimulation. Electric wires (leads) are surgically placed near painful nerves or next to the spinal cord. An implanted battery (pulse generator) is connect to these leads to stimulate the nerve or spinal cord, in turn blocking the transmission of pain signals to the brain.
