Spinal decompression surgery
Spinal decompression is the relief of pressure on one or many pinched nerves in the spinal column. It can be achieved through surgical and non-surgical techniques.
A surgical procedure, performed using keyhole surgery, during which a portion, or the whole, of a disc in the spinal column is removed to relieve pressure on a spinal nerve.
Epidural injection for pain relief
Epidural steroid injections can temporarily relieve pain caused by inflammation in the spine and improve function.
Facet joint injections
A lumbar facet joint injection involves injecting a small amount of local anesthetic (numbing agent) and/or steroid medication, which can anesthetize the facet joints and block the pain.
An invasive surgical treatment during which a small portion of the arch of a spinal vertebrae is removed to alleviate pressure on a pinched nerve.
