A DISTINCTLY DIFFERENT WAY TO TREAT CHRONIC LOW BACK PAIN Low back pain is the world’s leading cause of years lost to disability. Often, there is not a specific anatomical cause that can be treated with spine surgery. 1 Neurostimulation is a well-established pain treatment used by doctors for more than 50 years. One of Abbott’s most advanced forms of this therapy is BurstDR™ stimulation. It works by using mild electrical pulses delivered by a small implant to change pain signals as they travel from the spinal cord to the brain. When you participate in a clinical trial, you are joining the front line against a disease. If you have suffered with low back pain for more than 6 months and been told you are not a candidate for spine surgery, ask your doctor if the DISTINCT study is right for you. The DISTINCT study is designed to understand how BurstDR stimulation can relieve pain and improve physical function in people with chronic low back pain who have not had back surgery and in people who are not good candidates for surgery.
