Management of Axial Spinal Pain

3:30–5 pm Saturday, January 13

Treatment of chronic axial spinal pain has always represented a major challenge for the field of neuromodulation. As new techniques in neuromodulation evolve, they show promise for better patient outcomes. This session will review the currently available evidence on spinal cord stimulation (SCS) and intrathecal drug therapy (IDT) for treatment of axial spinal pain.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this educational activity, participants should be able to:

  • Discuss the role of SCS in axial spine pain.
  • Recognize the evidence for SCS in nonsurgical spinal pain.
  • Describe the role of IDT vs. SCS for axial spinal pain.

Faculty subject to change.
