Chronic pain affects thirty percent of people in America, according to
the New England Journal of Medicine. That’s one reason for the explosion
in opioid abuse and addiction. Now there’s a new neuro-stimulator
called the HF 10, and it’s dramatically reduced pain for many patients.
“Potentially, you can turn up or turn down certain signals, turn
off certain pain signals and give significant improvement of pain without
the need for opioids or other medications,” Dr. Williams said.
Dr. Williams says the HF 10 uses high frequency, eliminating a side effect
of other neurostimulators.
“What that means for the individual is that when they have that stimulator
on, and it’s covering an area where they have pain, they don’t
feel paresthesia, meaning they don’t feel tingling or buzzing, any
kind of uncomfortable sensation,” Dr. Willams explained.
