Understanding Dorsal Root Ganglion (DRG) Stimulation
What is DRG?
DRG Stimulation is a cutting-edge pain relief method. By targeting the dorsal root ganglion in your spinal cord, it modifies pain signals. The device uses electrical currents, heat, or vibration on specific nerve endings, reducing your discomfort while offering relief.
Who Should Consider DRG?
If you’re exploring alternatives to opioids, surgery, or traditional chronic pain treatments, DRG might be for you. It’s especially beneficial for conditions like failed back syndrome, diabetic neuropathy, fibromyalgia, and cancer-related nerve pain. Curious? Reach out to our office for more insights.
What’s the DRG Process?
Before the DRG procedure, you’ll undergo tests like CT scans, x-rays, and nerve conduction studies. The treatment starts with an epidural injection under anesthesia to pinpoint your pain source. Then, small injections are made into the DRG, offering relief that can last several months, depending on your condition’s severity.
How Long Does the Relief Last?
DRG stimulation provides temporary relief, typically lasting 3-6 months. The procedure, which takes about an hour, is done on an outpatient basis. Some post-procedure swelling and soreness are normal but usually fade in a few days.
