What is Spinal Decompression?
There are two forms of spinal decompression: surgical and non-surgical. Non-surgical spinal decompression is gaining popularity because it is a non-invasive procedure that often provides a marked improvement in back pain, with little or no recovery time required.
Non-surgical spinal decompression is much lower risk, and can be considered a more conservative treatment option, whereas surgical spinal decompression is used only after all other treatment options have failed to provide relief.
- Non-surgical Spinal Decompression: Non-surgical spinal decompression stretches the spine to facilitate relief of pressure to affected nerves and body structures, thus reducing pain and supporting the body’s natural healing process. This is typically accomplished using a traction table or similar motorized device, and is a service offered by many chiropractors.
- Surgical Spinal Decompression: Surgical spinal decompression is much more complex, and attempts to rectify back pain by physically removing part of the vertebral bone to relieve pressure on the spinal cord or other affected nerves, as in a laminectomy. This procedure requires hospitalization and a lengthy recovery. Microdiscectomy is a less invasive version of this procedure, where a tiny incision is made and specialized surgical tools are used in combination with computer imaging to perform the surgery. Consequently, risks associated with surgical procedures are greatly reduced, and recovery time is significantly less.
What Back Pain Conditions Benefit Most from Spinal Decompression?
Back pain conditions that are caused by pressure to a nerve or the spinal cord benefit most from spinal decompression. Herniated lumbar discs, bulging discs, spinal stenosis, degenerative discs, facet syndrome, or sciatica are all examples.
