Decompressive Laminectomy is considered to be the most common kind of surgical treatment performed to cure spinal stenosis. It relieves pressure that is caused on the roots of the spinal nerve or spinal cord which is caused do to age related transformations in the spine.
Decompressive Laminectomy is also done for other issues as well, for instance injuries of herniated discs, spine, or tumors. There are cases, where pressure is reduced on the roots of the nerves to ease the pain and let the patient get back to the normal every day activities. Decompressive Laminectomy removes parts of the vertebrae (bone) or/and tissues that are thickened which narrows the spinal canal and squeezes the nerve roots and spinal cord. This course of action is performed by surgically opening the back.
You can exercise religiously, eat a diet which is healthy, and follow every recommendation that has been given to you by your doctor. But regardless of how well-conditioned or healthy your body may be, sometime, the lower back of your body is almost set to create problems for you. For many people, this pain of low back is just a slight annoyance that occurs occasionally, stays around for a few days, and then gets all right. For others, there seems to be no pain relief. When this pain gets unrelieved, then it goes way ahead of a physical sensation.
