86 LOUISVILLE MAGAZINE 8.15 Louisville's Commonwealth Pain Associates Ofers Hope For Chronic Back Pain Suferers With Spinal Cord Stimulation Back pain will afect up to 80 percent of adults at some point in their lives, according to Dr. Jason Lewis of Commonwealth Pain Associates. While most back pain is temporary, lasting only a couple of weeks or months, some people experience chronic symptoms. The physicians at Commonwealth Pain Associates are comprehensive spine specialists utilizing promising treatments for patients with chronic back pain. They are dedicated to helping these patients regain control of their lives. Spinal cord stimulation is an exciting procedure becoming increasingly popular for the treatment of many causes of chronic back pain. This revolutionary treatment works by blocking pain signals from traveling through the spinal cord to the brain. It involves a small device placed near the spinal cord in the epidural space. The spinal stimulator device delivers low- level electrical impulses that interfere with the perception of chronic nerve pain. Maybe it's time you considered spinal cord stimulation. How do you know if you are candidate? Have conservative therapies failed you? Have you been told you would not beneft from additional surgery? You might be a candidate if your medications are no longer efective, you have coexisting leg or arm pain, you no longer want to be dependent on medications or your level of daily activities has diminished. Other indications include complex regional pain syndrome, sciatica, diabetic neuropathy and peripheral vascular disease.
