Early high-frequency spinal cord stimulation treatment inhibited the activation of spinal mitogen-activated protein kinases and ameliorated spared nerve injury-induced neuropathic pain in rats.


Neuromodulation therapies offer a treatment option that has minimal side effects and is relatively safe and potentially reversible. Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) has been used to treat various pain conditions for many decades. High-frequency SCS (HFSCS) involves the application of a single waveform at 10,000 Hz at a subthreshold level, therefore providing pain relief without any paresthesia.
