Spinal Decompression Procedure
The purpose of the spinal decompression procedure is to make more space for the spinal cord and to relieve pressure on nerve roots to mitigate permanent damage to nerves. The procedure is offered when a number of other treatment options have not been successful.
You will have restrictions following surgery that include very limited amounts of activity. Lifting, bending and twisting will be prohibited. You may need help with daily activities and should avoid sitting for long periods of time. After an adequate amount of healing time and a follow-up appointment at Harron Neurosurgery, you will be prescribed a rehabilitation program that will help you regain strength and range of motion.
