2 8 FIT 2014-2015 Special Advertising Section Dr. Ajith Nair, M.D., has spent the past 19 years of his medical practice in the feld of Pain Management, helping thousands of patients deal with a variety of ailments that cause pain. Passive treatment of chronic pain tends to encourage dependency on narcotics, which can cause serious medical consequences including liver damage and even death from accidental overdose. One safe and effective option that Dr. Nair uses for chronic pain sufferers is spinal cord stimulation (SCS). SCS has been used for more than 40 years to help people take control of their chronic pain. SCS delivers electrical impulses to specifc locations, masking pain signals with a smooth, tingling sensation called paresthesia. This sensation reduces the feeling of pain.
