INTRODUCTION Although burst spinal cord stimulation (SCS) has been reported to reduce neuropathic pain, no study has explicitly investigated how the different parameters that define burst SCS may modulate its efficacy. The effectiveness of burst SCS to reduce neuronal responses to noxious stimuli by altering stimulation parameters was evaluated in a rat model of cervical radiculopathy. METHODS Neuronal firing was recorded in the spinal dorsal horn before and after burst SCS on day 7 following… CONTINUE READING
