Conventional SCS Parameters

No Intervention: Washout Period
1 day where no stimulation is provided
Experimental: Test - Stimgenics SCS

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in Pain Relative to Baseline and After a Trial Period [ Time Frame: Baseline and 4 days plus or minus 1 days ]
    Numerical rating pain score measured before and after intervention. 11-point Numeric Pain Rating Scale (NPRS) with 0 being no pain at all and 10 being the worst pain imaginable (1-3 is rated as mild pain, 4-6 is rated at moderate pain, 7-9 is rated as severe pain). Subject rates average pain for the past 7 days.

  9. Have cognitive ability of operate the remote control and follow therapy instructions and directions by clinicians.

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Systemic infection.
  2. Any active implanted device.
  3. Previous experience with SCS therapy either during a trial or fully implanted
  4. Evidence of serious neurological, psychological or psychiatric disorders.
  5. Mechanical spinal instability.
  6. Patients with uncorrected coagulation disorders or who are on anticoagulation therapy and cannot interrupt the therapy.
  7. Patient who are pregnant, breast-feeding or women of childbearing potential with positive pregnancy tests.
  8. Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection or a clinically significant infection.
  9. Patients who are undergoing or will undergo therapies or diagnostics that involve electromagnetic fields such as: diathermy based therapies, electrocautery, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), radiofrequency (RF) or microwave ablation, bone growth stimulators, electrolysis, therapeutic ultrasound, ultrasound, lithotripsy, psychotherapeutic procedures, radiation therapy, and transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation.
  10. A clinically significant disorder such as cerebrovascular disease, pulmonary infarction, ischemic heart disease, cardiac dysrhythmia, myocardial infarction, or congestive heart failure or any other as determined by the investigator.
  11. Uncontrolled diabetes, uncontrolled pulmonary disease, or uncontrolled hypertension.
  12. Patients who have evidence of major psychiatric disease, mental disorder, drug dependency, alcohol dependency, or substance abuse disorders.
  13. Patients who have progressive neurological disease such as multiple sclerosis, chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy, rapidly progressive arachnoiditis, acute herniated disc, or any other as determined by investigator.
  14. Medical condition or pain in other body areas that could interfere with study procedures, accurate pain reporting, and/or confound evaluation of study end points.
  15. Concurrent participation in another clinical study.
  16. Involvement in an injury claim under current litigation or a pending or approved workers' compensation claim.
