I am in Australia, and they just did a news piece on the spinal cord stimulation (WHY hasn't any doctor mentioned this, i feel like i have to do all the work myself...whinge whinhe :).

Anyway, the new one out (how new i dont know) apparently uses the same technology as video games to change the dosage with specific movement types.

Has anyone had this new version and if so would you recommend it? Any reason not to try it?

My history - herniated disk L4-5 in 2008, microdiscectomy May 2008, ongoing pain since then. Tried physio, accupuncture, osteopathy, drugs (nice but addictive), anti inflamm injections, nerve burn and nerve block. All give temporary relief, but i need something more constant so i can exercise and get the core muscles strong enough to take the load off my back.

Thanks for your help
