Post laminectomy or implanted spinal stimulator

      Could we needle post laminectomy patients in paravertebral points with superficial technique, with shorter needle? What about patients with implanted spinal stimulator?

      Yes you can do superficial needling over a laminectomy site safely. In patients with spinal stimulators I would suggest that you stay away from the exact location of the stimulation but proximal and certainly distal down the nerve distribution makes clinical sense.
