The Axium system is designed to provide relief for patients battling chronic pain through stimulation of the dorsal root ganglion. This method especially is useful for treating focal pain areas that are challenging to treat using traditional spinal cord stimulation.
Jude, stimulation of the dorsal root ganglion with the Axium system has been shown to provide meaningful relief for patients battling chronic pain, and is especially useful for treating focal pain areas often challenging to treat using traditional spinal cord stimulation.
