Re: Internal tens

You are looking for a neurostimulator, sometimes referred to on the Back board and in the spinal community as a "spinal cord stimulator." One big supplier of them is Medtronic. You can go on their website and read all about them...but know they are not without some risk...and may reduce pain but will not take it away completely.
