DUBLIN, June 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/s4hmm7/global_pain) has announced the addition of the "Global Pain Management Devices Market 2014-2018" report to their offering.
SCS therapy is becoming increasingly popular for the treatment of chronic, refractory, and neuropathic pain. Pain management therapy using SCS devices involves MI implantation of electrodes into the epidural space near the source of the pain. When stimulated by an external or internal source, the electrodes produce a low voltage current which blocks the brain's ability to sense the previously perceived pain.
With technological advances in neurostimulator technology the new devices allow patients to adjust the stimulation if their pain changes in location or severity. In addition, design improvements of electrodes and rechargeable batteries allow implantable SCS devices to be placed in locations for optimal and more efficient pain control. The demand for SCS devices is increasing significantly because of their advantages.
According to the report, an increase in the aging population worldwide has led to greater incidence of chronic diseases such as chronic arthritis, diabetic neuropathy, osteoarthritis, and cancer, which is driving the demand for better pain management devices.
Further, the report states that one of the major market challenges is the presence of substitutes such as the pain management drugs that are available for the treatment of migraine, neuropathic, musculoskeletal, surgical, and trauma pains.
