How does HF10 Therapy work?
HF10 is a small implantable medical device that sends mild electrical pulses to the spinal cord to alter pain signals traveling to the brain, thus reducing pain. It uses mild pulses at a high frequency to quiet the pain-causing nerves. This is different compared to older stimulators that work by creating tingling in a patient’s pain area to distract the patient from their pain. With HF10, there is no tingling.
Can I drive with my stimulator?
HF10 is FDA-approved for use while driving.
