Chronic Pain Management for Stroke Survivors

Through the voice of her husband, Hank, we learn how stroke survivor Julie was severely affected by chronic shoulder pain and how the StimRouter™ Neuromodulation System helped decrease her pain and get her on a path to increased mobility toward leading a normal life.

For the up to 85 percent of stroke survivors who suffer from chronic shoulder pain, treatment options are limited, consisting mostly of short-term oral and injected medications like opioids with diminishing marginal pain relief.



National Stroke Association provides educational information about treatments for post-stroke issues through real-life stories. Promotion of these stories does not imply endorsement of any product or service and it is recommended that patients ask a healthcare professional before using any product, medicine, or therapy.
