At Beyond Podiatry we offer relief from sprained ankles using Stimwave, a neurostimulator that utilizes RF power near a peripheral nerve in your body to treat your chronic pain. This treatment represents the latest in minimally invasive technology that uses safe radiofrequency to manage chronic pain. If you are struggling and are eager for relief, our providers at Beyond Podiatry can help restore your comfort and ease your symptoms.
How Does Stimwave Work?
Stimwave uses electrical signals to interrupt pain signals to your brain. A specialist at Beyond Podiatry will use Stimwave to help you relieve stress in the body. A small simulator is placed below the back of the head’s nerves to deliver electrical pulses. The intensity and frequency of the electrical current is able to alleviate your pain and help you get back to your normal everyday activities.
What To Expect With The Stimwave Procedure
Implanting Stimwave involves the placement of a neurostimulator with electrodes and a receiver to utilize wireless RF power near a peripheral nerve in your body, below the head. Fitting through a needle-sized incision allows for placement with minimally invasive surgery, typically as an outpatient procedure. After this implantation process, you are given a handheld programmer to control the stimulation settings. This will help you relieve pain by sending electrical stimulation to the specific nerve locations where the pain is present, allowing you full control over the pain-relieving process.
The Recovery Time
Stimwave is a minimally invasive procedure that will help patients who suffer through constant nerve pain get back to their normal lives. Complete recovery from the implant takes roughly six weeks to two months depending on the age of the patient and where the device is implanted.
