Medtronic Pain Therapies
Medtronic offers effective pain therapies to manage chronic discomfort, reduce the need for oral opioids, and enhance quality of life. Whether you need relief through spinal cord stimulation (SCS) or targeted drug delivery, we have the solutions.
Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) is a pain management therapy that uses electrical pulses to stimulate nerves in the spine and block or reduce pain signals sent to the brain. SCS may be beneficial for individuals suffering from back and leg pain who have not responded to other treatments like medication or physical therapy.
Many patients consider this option, though it can be costly and requires a long-term commitment. Furthermore, some studies have noted some side effects from taking diclofenac.
Implantable devices for drug delivery offer an alternative to oral medications and can be more effective in managing chronic pain symptoms than pills alone. Furthermore, targeted drug delivery helps eliminate diversion of oral pain medication which could lead to abuse or overdose.
The company has been honing its battery technology for SCS implants, and clinical data shows that a low-energy version of Differential Target Multiplexed (DTM) programming can reduce recharges and extend device longevity. Furthermore, it developed a software platform called Snapshot which tracks activity and body positions to give physicians insights about mobility and progress.
Many patients find medtronic’s spinal cord stimulation and targeted drug delivery an effective strategy to manage their chronic pain. Studies have demonstrated that this combination of therapies significantly reduces the amount of time patients need to take oral opioids, while also improving pain-related function, quality of life and safety.
Our products can be used to effectively treat a variety of chronic pain conditions, such as diabetic peripheral neuropathy and intense migraines. Furthermore, we provide solutions for managing cancer-related discomfort and fibromyalgia.
At Our company, we are passionate about improving the lives of people suffering from chronic pain. For over three decades, our therapies have been clinically proven to reduce discomfort and enhance function in patients.
To help physicians better comprehend the advantages of a Medtronic therapy, we offer our Therapy Awareness Program. We’ll bring a patient who is currently using one of our therapies to your practice so you can discuss their experience with it.
Medtronic has been a leader in spinal cord stimulation for decades, and we continue to make advancements to enhance this therapy. This includes new battery technologies, smaller and contoured devices for increased comfort, as well as wider MRI access.
One of the most significant advances has been AdaptiveStim(tm), a technology that automatically adjusts your SCS settings according to movement. This feature gives you control over pain therapy intensity unlike previous SCS technologies.
Intrathecal pumps deliver medication more concentrated and directly into your spinal canal, where it’s most effective at relieving pain. Furthermore, the dosage is much smaller than with oral drugs, decreasing the chance of tolerance or overdose.
