Abstract. The following is a summary of our experience with treating complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) patients who have undergone spinal cord stimulator (SCS) treatment for one year or longer. The success or failure of the treatment with SCS depends on how early in the course of the illness the SCS treatment started, and depends on the nature of the original nociceptive pain.
