About Nevro HF10™ Therapy
If you have chronic back or leg pain, you now have a new option to consider: HF10™ therapy. HF10 therapy is proven to provide more relief from back and leg pain without the uncomfortable buzzing or tingling of paresthesia.
Defined as pain that persists for 3 months or longer, chronic pain affects millions of people worldwide. It most commonly affects the back, but may affect the arms, legs, head, or other locations. Consulting a doctor to help manage the pain is important because pain is complex and requires specialized care
Multiple treatment options are available. Physicians may recommend physical therapy, lifestyle modifications, or psychological therapy to help correct or minimize pain. Medications, corrective surgery, injections, or spinal cord stimulation (SCS) may also be prescribed.
SCS is a well-established pain treatment. It delivers electrical pulses to the spinal cord to mask or interrupt the transmission of abnormal pain signals to the brain. The pulses are sent by small electrodes placed near the spinal cord that connect to a compact battery-powered generator, which is implanted under the skin.
A common side effect of most SCS therapies is a tingling or buzzing sensation, known as paresthesia. For many patients, this tingling masks their pain, but it is always present.
