Peripheral nerves make up the peripheral nervous system, the network of nerves that connect the entire body to the brain and spinal cord. These nerves are responsible for movement, motor coordination, and sensation.

Peripheral nerve stimulation is a type of neuromodulation, similar to spinal cord stimulation. At the Weill Cornell Medicine Division of Pain Management, our team includes leading experts in neuromodulation and peripheral nerve stimulation.

With peripheral nerve stimulation, a non-rechargeable stimulation device is implanted next to one of the peripheral nerves to deliver rapid electrical pulses. The device can be adjusted to deliver the preferred amount of pain-relieving stimulation.

Conditions Treated with Peripheral Nerve Stimulation

Peripheral nerve stimulation is a treatment option for:

  • Some types of back pain
  • Complex regional pain syndrome
  • Migraine headaches

Advantages of Peripheral Nerve Stimulation

With peripheral nerve stimulation, the stimulation device can be placed on a trial basis before it is implanted. This helps ensure that the right area receives the pain-relieving stimulation.

As with all neuromodulation, this treatment therapy reduces or even eliminates, the need for oral pain medications.
