You're not searching for relief alone
If you or a loved one is living with chronic pain, you're among the millions of people who know the burden it can be. The long journey from one failed back surgery to the next. The daily physical and mental toll. The frustration of explaining what the pain is like to one doctor after another.
Today, lasting pain relief is possible. Neurostimulation therapy has been recommended by doctors for more than 50 years to manage chronic pain and improve quality of life1. And recent advancements from Abbott give doctors a greater chance at increasing relief. If you’re suffering from chronic pain, we are here to help and want you to look forward to life like you remember it.
Your best life is still possible
It's about the control you need to pour your morning coffee, button your shirt, or brush your teeth. The simple everyday activities that rely on a complex interaction between your brain, spinal cord, nerves, and muscles can be seriously affected by movement disorders such as Parkinson’s disease and essential tremor.
If you live with life-altering movement disorder symptoms, they can leave you with a very important goal: to regain control of your movements and get back to your day-to-day life. We're here to help you reach that goal.
