Hey I have severe spinal injuries, and pain meds and physical therapy , along with Epidoral injections in the back just don't cut it. I have a Tens unit, and use it sparingly, but my DR wants be to either try to put a Spinal cord Stimulator inside me, or a Morphine Pump. I have just found out in the last few Months that since 2003 i have had a Bone Stimulator implanted in me, and i didn't even know it, I was shocked, Because although my initial pain from surgery did almost go away completely, this Bone Stimulator has been in me for almost a Decade w/o my knowledge,But my father had a Spinal cord stimulator inside him, and he would get a buzz when the phone would ring ( No BS ), and they took it out because that model had a recall on it. So I Refuse to get it. I am not sure if a Nuerotherapy stimulator is the same as a Spinal cord Stimulator, but if so, my opinion is I would not get it.
