Conditions Spinal Decompression Can Treat: Exploring the Options
Spinal decompression surgery can effectively treat various conditions affecting the spine. Here are some common conditions for which spinal decompression may be recommended:
Herniated discs: When the soft, gel-like material inside a spinal disc leaks out, it can press against nearby nerves, causing pain and other symptoms.
- Spinal stenosis: This condition involves the narrowing of the spinal canal, putting pressure on the spinal cord and nerves, leading to pain and weakness.
- Degenerative disc disease: As discs in the spine age and deteriorate, they can lose their cushioning ability, causing pain and discomfort.
- Sciatica: Compression of the sciatic nerve can cause radiating pain, numbness, or tingling sensations along the lower back, buttocks, and legs.
- Pinched nerves: When nerves become compressed or irritated, they can cause pain, weakness, or numbness in the areas they serve.
Consulting with a qualified healthcare professional is essential to determine whether spinal decompression surgery is suitable for your specific condition.
