  • I have not read of any new stimulators coming out on the market. There are people who get relief for their back pain from a stimulator. The best way to determine if one will work for you is to do a trial. If it helps, then you go for it. It's as simple as that. My stimulator isn't perfect and certainly doesn't reach all of my pain. It's just one more thing I use to help me cope.

    I hope yo figure things out.
