Real-World Retrospective Study of Axial Neck Pain Relief after Peripheral Nerve stimulation of the Cervical Medial Branch Nerves - GlobeNewswire

Information presented during Pacific Spine Pain Society annual meeting —

CLEVELAND in the month of September. 21st 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -SPR Therapeutics SPR Therapeutics shared data on the application for peripheral nerve stimulation (PNS) to provide pain relief for patients suffering from neck pain axially during the Pacific Spine Pain Society annual gathering at Las Vegas. This real-time, anonymized data from patients who received surgical placement using SPRINT (r) PNS System gives an insightful and informative review of the way PNS can be used to treat a larger variety of patients than could be enrolled in a controlled study. This non-destructive treatment was applied to efferent fibers within cervical medial branch nerves. According to the retrospective study the study, 83 % of patients responded that is, at the minimum, 50% less discomfort and/or clinically significant improvement in the quality of life.

The treatment of neck axial pain is a critical medical necessity and a significant medical possibility since an estimated 10% from the U.S. adult population at the time of diagnosis are affected by this particular painful, and often debilitating, pain. Percutaneous PNS for 60 days has been identified as a viable non-destructive treatment that could be employed to treat neck pain in the axial direction through the targeting of efferent fibers within the cervical medial branching nerves to create comfortable tension cycling in the cervical muscles (e.g. multifidus). The use of SPRINT PNS SPRINT PNS System to stimulate the cervical medial branch nerves in a non-invasive method to treat neck pain provides an alternative to conventional treatment options like opioids, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medicines as well as muscle relaxants. spinal injections and surgical procedures.

“The utilization of SPRINT PNS as a viable alternative that is minimally-invasive is a significant breakthrough for both doctors and patients looking for a treatment option for neck pain, without having to undergo surgical intervention,” said Dr. Ryan Mattie, Lead Author an Interventional Physician for Pain Management. at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
