Nerve Stimulation Helps Manage Pain Without Opioids
Researchers use a new technique that uses an injectable liquid polymer that cures – like household epoxy -- next to or around the target nerve. This device provides a localized stimulus that avoids the side effects of other types of neuromodulation therapy. The innovation is the result of research by a NIH Helping to End Addiction Long-term (HEAL) Initiative grantee, the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering's (NIBIB's). Full story.
