Peripheral nerve stimulation is a commonly used technique to treat chronic pain. Peripheral nerves are the nerves that are located beyond the brain and spinal cord. Peripheral nerve stimulation involves surgery that places a small electrical device next to one of the peripheral nerves. The electrode delivers rapid electrical pulses that are felt like mild tingles that the patient is able to control by adjusting the device parameters. Some of the common uses of peripheral nerve stimulation are for back pain to migraine headaches.
