Regular back pains can cause uneasiness and instability in your day-to-day life. People, nowadays, have started turning to spinal decompression techniques – surgical and non-surgical.
- Non-surgical spinal decompression
Non-surgical spinal decompression helps relieve your pain by stretching the spine very gently. The stretching helps in changing the force and the position of the spine, which, in turn, reduces the pressure on the disk. As a result, any herniated or a bulging disk which might be the cause of the pain in the first place retracts causing the pressure to reduce off the spine and the neighboring nerves. The spinal decompression promotes the movement of oxygen, nutrients, fluids, and water in the disk which help the spinal disk to heal quickly.
- Spinal decompression with surgery
Surgical spinal decompression has a success rate of about 90-95%.The relief is instant, and hence patients who can afford the expenses are not scared of surgery often tend to opt for this option. Lumbar laminectomy is the surgery which is mostly performed. Here, the backbone is segmented into one or more sections with the aim to alleviate the pressure on the spinal nerves and the cord.
During this procedure, the lamina (the bone in the back of the vertebra) at one or more segments is removed with the goal of alleviated pressure on the spinal cord or nerves. Few additional surgeries are done to get adequate spinal decompression. Significantly using decompression techniques, traction, spinal positioning, and distraction are done which provides instant results. The patient wakes up to find a huge relief in the pain.
Spinal decompression is gaining importance with large cases of intervertebral discs are being recorded. Busy in their hectic lives, people tend to take themselves less seriously which leads to health problems and causes instability in their lives. Spinal decompression is a modern technique, and it effectively treats the back pain, and even legs and arm pains.
