The road to recovery following an injury accident can be long and arduous. Pain relief for those injuries in the past frequently came in the form of various opioid medications. Injury victims had to weigh the side effects of pain meds and the risk of addiction against their need for pain relief.
Fortunately, medical technology has provided some drug-free alternatives. Patients for whom medications were not the preferred option for pain relief had few alternatives, which have not always been ideal. Enter the Intellis by Medtronic. With a serious opioid abuse epidemic in the U.S., an alternative method of pain relief could not have come at a more opportune time.
How It Works
The Intellis device uses electrical stimulation of the spinal cord, which blocks pain signals from reaching the patient’s brain. It can be controlled using a Samsung tablet and comes with a battery that can be recharged in just one hour. An interface for physicians to monitor device performance and tweak settings is also included.
According to Medtronic, Intellis is indicated for a wide range of chronic back pain issues, such as herniated disks and multiple back operations.
As a long-term pain relief solution for adult patients, the Intellis platform is an implantable alternative to high dosage medication therapy.
Consult Your Physician
If you have been in an accident and are receiving pain relief therapy, ask your doctor about Intellis. See if you might benefit from a spinal cord stimulation system to accelerate your recovery.
