Burst spinal cord stimulation (B-SCS) has been shown to reduce neuronal firing in the anterior cingulate cortex through selective modulation of the medial pain pathway tract. This pain pathway communicates the affective component of pain processing. The purpose of this study was to assess the effect of B-SCS on psychosocial functioning and its influence on pain and quality of life.
