Robert J. Busse can't remember a time in his life when he didn’t have back pain. But the 69-year-old retired attorney does remember the moment he found out he could do something about it. It was 2016, when a Proclaim XR spinal cord stimulator was implanted in Busse's back. Just after the procedure, his doctor came to talk with him about his new device and 'cranked up' the stimulator for a demonstration. 'I remember I even shed a tear because I felt a sensation in my left big toe that I had not felt in years,' Busse recalled. 'I said, 'Whatever you did, you hung that thing off my spinal cord in the right spot.' ' All of a sudden, Busse had found the 'off' button for an alarm that had been sounding in his brain for 40-plus years.
