Lumbar Decompression

As we age, our spine develops arthritis and degeneration of the disc and adjacent joints. As arthritis develops, the area available for the nerve roots diminishes. The pressure on the nerve roots can cause both back and leg pain.

If conservative measures fail, lumbar decompression allows removal of the arthritic elements and taking away the pressure on the lumbar nerve roots.

The MRI shows the side view of the low back [lumbar spine] showing the narrowing of the spine where the fluid seems to be cutting off in the middle of the lumbar spine [marked with an ellipse].
