Neural Stimulation Zaps Away Chronic Pain

<br> <P>The same technology used in your smart phone is helping zap away severe pain.<br></P>

116 MILLION AMERICANS ARE LIVING WITH CHRONIC PAIN-A PAIN SO INTENSE IT AFFECTS THEIR WORK, THEIR RELATIONSHIPS, AND EVERY ASPECT OF THEIR LIVES.
IN FACT, THERE ARE MORE PEOPLE LIVING WITH CHRONIC PAIN IN THIS COUNTRY THAN WITH HEART DISEASE, CANCER AND DIABETES COMBINED.
NOW, DOCTORS ARE USING THE SAME TECHNOLOGY USED IN OUR SMART PHONES TO TARGET AND ZAP THEIR PAIN.
FROM WORKING 18 HOURS A DAY ON WALL STREET TO BARELY BEING ABLE TO MAKE IT INTO THE SUBWAY.
IT'S BEEN A LONG PAINFUL ROAD FOR JUSTIN CARRIERE.
"It was an incredible, sharp shooting pain."
IT STARTED 10 YEARS AGO WHEN HE SLAMMED HIS SNOWMOBILE INTO A CREEKBED.
"It sent a shockwave up my back. I couldn't sit at all. I had to always stand up." 
PIECES OF JUSTIN'S DISC WERE PRESSING AGAINST HIS SCIATIC NERVE. SURGERY ONLY TEMPORARILY EASED HIS PAIN. HE ALSO TRIED PRESCRIPTION PAIN KILLERS.
"My ambition and drive at work greatly suffered."
NOW, JUSTIN IS ONE OF THE FIRST TO TRY A NEW F-D-A APPROVED NEUROSTIMULATOR TO ZAP HIS PAIN.
NEUROSTIMULATORS USE ELECTRODES, CONTROLLED BY A BATTERY PACK, TO SEND STIMULATION TO THE SPINAL CORD, LITERALLY STOPPING PAIN SIGNALS FROM REACHING THE BRAIN.
THEY'VE BEEN AROUND SINCE THE 80'S, BUT NOW, A NEW STIMULATOR IS USING THE SAME TECHNOLOGY IN I-PHONES TO BETTER CONTROL THE SIGNALS. 
"New technology is so advanced, so we can call it a smart stimulator."
THESE "SMART" STIMULATORS CAN READ A PERSON'S BODY MOVEMENT AND ADJUST THE AMOUNT AND LOCATION OF ELECTRICITY BEING SENT WHEN A PERSON MOVES. JUSTIN JUST GOT HIS SMART STIMULATOR.
"The leads go in here and it goes into the spine."
BUT HE CAN ALREADY FEEL THE DIFFERENCE.
"It drowns the pain away."
NOW, HE'S ON THE MOVE AGAIN, READY TO GET BACK TO BUSINESS.
THE F-D-A JUST APPROVED THE ADAPTIVE STIM NEUROSTIMULATOR A FEW MONTHS AGO. 
IN THE LATEST STUDY, 86 PERCENT OF PEOPLE WHO TRIED IT FOUND RELIEF FROM THEIR PAIN.
