An intrathecal pump, or pain pump, works by pumping pain medicine through a catheter into your spinal cord.
The medicine will work immediately, so you won't have to deal with the pain any longer than necessary.
Here are three things that make pain pumps an effective pain management option:
They provide long-lasting relief from chronic back pain.
They're a good long-term solution because they don't have to be replaced often.
They pump medicine directly into your spinal cord, so you'll feel instant relief.
