Title: METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR MULTIMODAL ELECTRICAL MODULATION OF PAIN USING COMPOSITE ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS
Abstract:
Apparatus and methods for managing pain uses a single composite modulation/stimulation signal with variable characteristics to achieve the same results as separate varying electromagnetic signals. The composite signal is utilized for modulating the expression of genes involved in diverse pathways including inflammatory/immune system mediators, ion channels and neurotransmitters, in both the Spinal Cord (SC) and Dorsal Root Ganglion (DRG) where such expression modulation is caused by spinal cord stimulation or peripheral nerve stimulation using the disclosed apparatus and techniques.
