We present a case of a 43-year-old woman with a history of Parkinson's disease and chronic neuropathic pain secondary to trauma. She was implanted with a spinal cord simulator to relieve her persistent intractable pain. After the implantation of the device the patient not only was relieved of her neuropathic pain but also found significant improvement in her Parkinson symptoms.
