Information presented during Pacific Spine Pain Society annual meeting The Pacific Spine Pain Society annual meeting

CLEVELAND September. 21 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -SPR Therapeutics SPR Therapeutics presented data regarding the application in peripheral nerve stimulation (PNS) to provide pain relief for patients suffering from neck pain axially in the Pacific Spine Pain Society annual gathering located in Las Vegas. The anonymized data of patients who had an operation that was commercially placed using the (r) PNS System gives an important and thorough analysis of the way PNS works across a greater variety of patients than could be enrolled in a controlled study. The non-destructive treatment was administered to efferent fibers within cervical medial branch nerves. According to the retrospective review the results showed that 83 % of patients showed improvement that is, at the minimum, 50% decrease in pain or a significantly improved quality of life.

The treatment of neck axial pain is a critical medical need as well as a major medical possibility since an estimated 10% from the U.S. adult population at any time is affected by this particular chronic, sometimes debilitating pain. Percutaneous PNS, which is a procedure that lasts for sixty days, has been as a possible non-destructive treatment option that could be utilized to treat neck pain in the axial direction through the targeting of efferent fibers within the cervical medial branch nerves in order to create a comfortable cycle tension in the cervical musculature (e.g. multifidus). The use of SPRINT PNS SPRINT PNS System to stimulate the cervical medial branch nerves in an off-label way to relieve neck pain is an alternative to the commonly utilized treatments like opioids, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications and muscle relaxants. spinal injections and surgical procedures.

“The application of SPRINT PNS as a viable alternative that is minimally-invasive is a significant breakthrough for both doctors and patients who are trying for a treatment option for neck pain without having use surgical procedures,” said Dr. Ryan Mattie, Lead Author as well as Interventional Pain Management physician Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
