Decompression

Decompression treatment in Mysore

Decompression treatment in Mysore is performed to widen the channel when the spinal canal is narrow. This procedure can relieve some symptoms, such as myelopathy of the cervical and thoracic spine and radiculopathy of the spinal canal. A cervical fusion can be performed at any level of the vertebral column, and it may affect a single level of the spine or, in rare cases, a large section of the spine. There could be various reasons why this could be the case, including degenerative diseases, pain, injury, weakness, or other neurological conditions that may cause this to occur.

The symptoms of narrowing or stenosis of the spinal cord and nerve root canals in the arms and legs include chronic pain, numbness, and weakness. To treat spinal decompression therapy, a variety of treatments are available, such as medication, physical therapy, and surgery. In cases with severe pain and/or problems with the nervous system, a doctor may suggest surgery.

What is its purpose?

Spinal decompression relieves pressure on critical structures within the spine, such as the nerve roots and vertebral cord. By releasing tension on these structures, it is possible to ease the pain, numbness, and tingling that may be experienced. After spinal decompression, the symptoms of weakness may either improve or may not improve, depending on the cause of the weakness.

What is the process?

In detail, your surgeon will be able to explain the surgery process. The method of spinal decompression can be accomplished in several ways. Your surgeon will be able to explain which approach they intend to take to achieve the desired results. Most of the time, general anaesthesia is required for the procedure. A surgeon uses anatomic landmarks and X-rays to determine the appropriate level of surgery based on anatomical landmarks. Based on the approach taken, it may be necessary to retract the paraspinal muscles (muscles attached to the sides of the spine) and scrape the bone from the back of the patient. Any abnormal bones, ligaments, or disc materials that need to be removed by the surgeon to perform surgery will be removed by the surgeon during the procedure. As soon as you awaken, your anaesthesia team will undo the anaesthesia, remove the breathing tube, and suture the underlying skin and tissues to prevent infection.

Is there a risk involved?

As well as the usual risks associated with surgical and anaesthetic procedures, such as bleeding, infection, stroke, coma, heart attack, and death, spinal decompression is associated with several additional risks, such as damage to the blood vessels, nerve damage, and cerebrospinal fluid leakage. Spinal decompression with little or no complications is generally regarded as well-tolerated.
