Spine decompression is a procedure performed to relieve pressure on the spinal nerves anywhere along the spine from the neck (cervical) to the lower back (lumbar). A posterior decompression is an operation to relieve pressure on a nerve or spinal cord in the neck via a scar on the back of the neck. It’s normally recommended after failed non-operative treatment.
Problems with the spine can be due to several conditions but also occur from general wear and tear over time making the discs in the back change shape and size causing nerves to be trapped. Symptoms can include reduced mobility, stiffness and pain in the neck and back. In severe cases numbness and weakness of the back can cause longer term problems, spinal decompression surgery can relieve these symptoms and reduce further degeneration.
