For patients with chronic low back pain, the SPRINT® PNS System is a first-line treatment designed to deliver significant, sustained relief without the need to destroy nerve tissue.
Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is a frequently used treatment option for low back pain. However, ablation may lead to worsening multifidus atrophy, disc degeneration and segmental instability, and many patients require regular retreatment.1 Peripheral nerve stimulation (PNS) relieves pain while preserving the nerve — a low risk, minimally invasive option earlier in the care pathway.
A majority of study participants experienced significant reductions in pain intensity, disability and/or pain interference through at least 14 months following the start of PNS treatment.2
Results for pain intensity shown above, see reference for additional details on reductions in disability and pain interference.
