An ongoing clinical study in Carlsbad, Calif., is investigating a new way to help treat people who suffer with chronic low back pain.
Abbott’s DISTINCT study will compare the use of spinal cord stimulation (SCS) to standard medical care, which can include taking medicine, and will determine how much a patient’s level of pain, physical function and emotional well-being improves under each type of care.
The DISTINCT study is now enrolling people at Coastal Pain & Spinal Diagnostics. Patients will receive either SCS treatment or be treated with medication. Participants will be followed in-clinic and via telephone over a two-year period.
