Lumbar Decompression


Direct & Indirect Lumbar Decompression

If you have back pain, neck pain, or sciatica, direct and indirect lumbar decompression may offer you the relief you need. These procedures treat degenerative disk disease, bulging and herniated disks, worn spinal joints, and injured spinal nerve roots.

Without lumbar decompression, you may continue to suffer, and your condition may lead to long-term problems. Pain & Spine Specialists will do a complete medical evaluation and address the root causes of any discomfort or mobility issues. We have direct & indirect lumbar decompression procedures that can help.

Lumbar Decompression Q&A

We will get details about your condition, discuss your needs and expectations, and complete a medical examination. Our pain management and regenerative medicine can help you feel better and heal after that.

  • What is Decompression?

    This procedure improves fluids and oxygen flow to your spinal disks so they can heal. Decompression takes the pressure off your spinal disks and nerves, successfully treating bulging or herniated disks.

  • What is the difference between direct & indirect lumbar decompression?

    Indirect lumbar decompression is done without removing compressing tissue. This reduces complications such as damage to the spinal cord or nerves.

  • Can you help with both recent and old injuries?

    Direct & indirect lumbar decompression treatment can help with degenerative disease and new injuries too.

  • Will I need surgery?

    We may have non-surgical or minimally invasive solutions. We will do a thorough examination and provide you with your options.

  • What medications will I need?

    If you have pain, we will address the root cause of your discomfort versus treating it with painkillers and temporary measures that just mask your symptoms. Medications may be prescribed when needed, but our goal is to restore you to complete wellness without dependence on drugs.
