Allentown Counseling - Spinal Cord Stimulator Evaluations

Spinal Cord Stimulator Evaluations

Are you undergoing consideration for a spinal cord stimulator implantation? Thriveworks Allentown can help. We have licensed psychologists who can help provide a psychological evaluation to determine if you might be a suitable candidate.

What is a Spinal Cord Stimulator Evaluation?

Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS) is a pain management strategy for patients with chronic pain and is an alternative for medication or back surgery. However, research suggests that many psychological factors are important predictors in producing positive outcomes. Therefore, many insurances and physicians are requiring that you have a psychological evaluation as part of the screening process to determine if you are a successful candidate and have the likelihood of having positive outcomes. During the evaluation, you will meet with a psychologist who gathers information about you and your history and the assessment may include some psychological tests. If there are any concerns, we want to help you resolve those issues so that you can be a successful candidate in the future.
