Tonic spinal cord stimulation (SCS) is currently used to treat neuropathic pain. With this type of stimulation, an implantable pulse generator generates electrical paresthesias in the affected area through one or more epidural leads. The goal of this study was to evaluate the impact of tonic SCS on the sensory perception of chronic pain patients using quantitative sensory testing (QST).
