Lumbar Spinal Decompression

Lumbar Spinal Decompression at Yorkshire Clinic

Spinal decompression

Spinal decompression or lumbar decompression is a type of surgery used to give your spinal cord and nerves more space and relieve their compression. “Decompression” usually means removing tissue (bone, ligaments, disc) that is compressing neural tissue.

It can be performed anywhere along your spine including your neck (cervical), chest (thoracic) and lower back (lumbar). Lumbar decompression surgery relieves lower back neural impingement. It is recommended as an option when non-surgical treatments have not been successful.

By reducing pressure on the nerves in your lumbar spine, spinal decompression surgery aims to improve symptoms such as sharp shooting pain (sciatica), persistent ache, cramping, ‘pins and needles’ and numbness in the legs.
