Neuromodulation: an introduction.

In this week's episode of the Spine & Nerve podcast Dr. Gurai and Dr. Joves give us a quick introduction into neuromodulation.

Some of you may be asking what neuromodulation is... It is defined by the International Neuromodulation Society as "technology that acts directly upon nerves. It is the alteration—or modulation—of nerve activity by delivering electrical or pharmaceutical agents directly to a target area."

Best known as a treatment for chronic pain (and the reason we are passionate about it), neuromodulation also includes deep brain stimulation (DBS) treatment for Parkinson's disease, sacral nerve stimulation for pelvic disorders and incontinence, spinal cord stimulation for ischemic disorders (angina, peripheral vascular disease), and targeting other parts of the nerve for focal nerve disorders such as ilioinguinal neuralgia after hernia repair or pain after total joint replacements.

Neuromodulation works by stimulating nerves to produce a response. When we think of this in the pain management world, we usually explain to patients that we send signals to nerves that change the signaling cascades at the level of stimulation. This changes painful signals to less painful signals, therefore changing the patient's pain experience.
