Chronic back pain can make the simplest tasks excrutiating and in some cases, medication and surgery don't ease the pain. The doctors at Washington Center for Pain Management specialize in treating all types of chronic pain. Dr. Hyun Hong, the Center's Medical Director, and patientJoseph Katancik joined Margaret to talk about Spinal Cord Stimulation, which provided almost instant relief for Joseph when several back surgeries did not.
