|Official Title:||The Effect of Pulse Width on the Treatment of Chronic Low Back Pain With Spinal Cord Stimulation|
- Pain Severity, as Measured on the 11-point (0-10) Numerical Rating Scale (NRS) [ Time Frame: Within 6 months post-implantation ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Pain severity as measured by NRS quantifies pain, where 0 is "no pain" and 10 is "worst pain imaginable"

|Primary Completion Date:||October 2007 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
This study will generate data which may allow Precision SCS devices to be used or programmed in such a way as to relieve pain while minimizing any uncomfortable sensations. This study will extend anecdotal reports into a prospective analysis of outcome data.
Patients invited to participate in this study will have recently been implanted with the Precision system, or will be eligible for SCS therapy and will have already selected therapy with the Advanced Bionics Precision system, independent of possible inclusion in this study.
