Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 360 participants
Allocation: N/A
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Spinal Cord Stimulation Research Study
Actual Study Start Date : December 12, 2018
Estimated Primary Completion Date : January 2029
Estimated Study Completion Date : January 2029

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Spinal Cord Stimulation
Each subject will be programmed to different settings.
Device: Spinal Cord Stimulation

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Numeric pain rating scale [ Time Frame: 16 weeks ]
    To characterize the effect of different programmed settings on pain relief. The NPRS will be recorded once a day on a multi-day diary, where the subjects will rate their pain on a 11-point numeric rating scale of 0 to 10, with 0 representing 'No Pain' and 10 representing 'Worst pain imaginable'. The average overall NPRS pain score from the last 7 days of the diary prior to the scheduled visit will be used for analysis.
