Report on a case series investigating the STIMPOD NMS460 for the treatment of pain and improvement of mobility and function following elbow surgery

A group of seven patients received neurostimulation treatment with the Stimpod NMS460 post-tennis or golfer’s elbow surgery as their sole treatment to relieve acute post-operative pain, improve mobility and function. Patients under- going the above-mentioned surgery have had chronic pain with and without neuropathic symptoms for a prolonged period.

There is usually severe injury with active inflammatory processes due to the surgery. It was thought that treating these patients aggressively early post-operatively may expedite pain relief and the healing process. It appears that the neurostimulation (Stimpod) has the capacity to improve acute post-surgical pain and reduce pain, improve mobility, function and stimulate wound healing once the splint was removed. This treatment is relatively cost effective, is non-invasive and of short duration. Positive effects were all maintained at 6 months.
