Has Anyone Tried Neuromodulation Treatment For Chronic Pain?

Has Anyone Tried Neuromodulation Treatment For Chronic Pain?

I've just been reading about neuromodulation also known as Spinal cord Stimulation as a treatment for chronic pain and wondered if anyone has had opportunity to try this? Its not a widely available treatment. I live in the U.K. where there are 1 or 2 specialist places you can go for the treatment. The Walton Centre is one of them. They implant an electrode or drug delivery system near the spinal cord.
