Chronic Pain Relief,
Many chronic pain
patients feel as if they exhausted all their treatment options and will be
stuck living in pain forever. Joe was one of these chronic pain patients. For
14 years Joe suffered from post-stroke chronic shoulder pain and he tried
everything from slings to prescription pain medicine to rehabilitation and
nothing seemed to work.
With the help of a
minimally-invasive neuromodulation device called StimRouter, Joe and many more
chronic pain patients now have another option to help treat their chronic pain.
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.

realize what you go through and how it changes your life when you have a
stroke. We just have to get out in the community and advocate for stroke”.
