1. A system for managing pain in a patient using an electrical waveform, comprising:

  • an electrode device configured to be implanted into a patient and including a plurality of electrodes having at least a first electrode associated with a first area of the patient and a second electrode associated with a second area of the patient, wherein the first area has a first therapy range for a waveform parameter and the second area has a second therapy range for the waveform parameter; and

    an implantable device configured to be coupled to the electrode device, the implantable device including a power supply, a waveform generator configured to generate a waveform, and a computer-operable medium operatively coupled to the waveform generator, the computer-operable medium being programmed to change the waveform parameter applied to the first electrode and automatically set the waveform parameter applied to the second electrode based on a relationship between the first therapy range and the second therapy range.
