Peripheral Nerve Stimulation: StimQ PNS


The Pain Center in San Diego is proud to offer the StimQ Peripheral Nerve Stimulation device for our patients who suffer from chronic pain. This state-of-the-art technology allows us to relieve intractable or unrelieved pain by other methods.

Our team of experts, led by Dr. Sandra Thompson, is well versed in this treatment and will work with you to develop a personalized plan that meets your needs and helps you regain your quality of life. With its proven success rates, the StimQ provides a safe and reliable way for you to find relief from your chronic pain and start living the life you deserve.

The StimQ Peripheral Nerve System (PNS) is a revolutionary way to treat chronic and acute pain. It offers an effective, non-invasive solution for those who suffer from intractable pain. This cutting-edge device uses transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation to mitigate pain across the entire body. It is a sleek and compact device that can even be taken into an MRI scan if necessary. Compared to other treatments, StimQ PNS is much smaller and more lightweight, so you can easily wear it discreetly under clothes.

The advantages of the StimQ PNS System are numerous. It saves patients from undergoing invasive surgeries and provides comprehensive relief for most chronic pain by stimulating the nervous system, where more traditional treatments would fail.

Furthermore, the StimQ PNS has adjustable settings allowing for personalized treatment depending on the individual’s needs and the intensity of their condition. The stimulation process is non-invasive and can be done in just 20 minutes with minimal risk of side effects, making it a safe, drug-free alternative to other forms of therapy. For anyone looking for a long-term solution to their chronic pain, this could be an ideal option to explore with Dr. Thompson.

The main disadvantage of using the StimQ PNS system is that it requires an external battery which must be worn either as a belt or sleeve beneath clothing which may feel slightly bulky.

However, this slight discomfort should not outweigh the positive benefits associated with this form of treatment, as its efficacy in relieving severe chronic pain has been proven repeatedly in medical studies around the world.

When conservative treatments like physical therapy, lifestyle changes, and pain medications are no longer effective, it is time to consider using a PNS like the StimQ. This includes people with chronic shoulder, low back, knee, or ankle pain that have already tried other forms of therapy but found no relief.

StimQ PNS treatment is an effective solution for chronic pain because it stimulates the peripheral nervous system and improves nerve function on a cellular level. This helps reduce pain and inflammation as well as enhances tissue healing.

The StimQ PNS System is designed to provide long-term relief from chronic pain in various areas of the body, including:

  • Suprascapular nerves located in the neck
  • Brachial and plexus nerves in the arms
  • Femoral and sacral nerves in the legs
  • Scrotal and pudendal nerves near the genital area
  • Sciatic nerve along the lower back down to the foot
  • Intercostal nerves between ribs and shoulder blades
  • Ulnar, median, and radial nerves found in hands/wrists/forearms
  • Superior cluneal nerves at the top of the buttocks crease
  • Ilioinguinal nerve around the inner thighs
  • Genicular nerve on knee joints
  • Peroneal and sural nerves behind the calf muscles
  • Posterior tibial nerve found in feet

The StimQ PNS System effectively treats chronic pain without invasive procedures. Moreover, with its advanced technology, patients can expect to feel positive results from this system over a long period of time.

StimQ stands out from other devices because of its selective stimulation capabilities, which allow physicians to accurately target specific peripheral nervous system pathways for targeted relief for their patient’s condition.
