A nerve impingement, also known as a “pinched nerve,” occurs when there is too much pressure placed on a nerve. Regardless of where this happens in the body, it can lead to a painful and uncomfortable condition; however, when a pinched nerved affects your back, it can be debilitating and require the need for a surgical intervention known as nerve decompression surgery.

From laminectomy and discectomy procedures to nerve decompression for wrists, our surgeons can accurately diagnose your condition and provide you with the compassionate, expert treatment you need to address it and help you Get Better Faster.

What Is Nerve Decompression Surgery?

Simply put, nerve decompression surgery refers to just about any surgery that acts to alleviate pressure on a nerve. This procedure aims to either remove the source of compression on your nerve area and/or open up narrow spaces that are confining the nerve to give it more room for an effective nerve release, resulting in a reduction of pain and discomfort.

Some of the most common conditions leading to a nerve decompression surgery include:

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Cauda equina syndrome
  • Cubital tunnel syndrome
  • Herniated disc
  • Sciatica
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Spondylolisthesis
  • Tarsal tunnel syndrome

There are several different types of nerve release and decompression procedures; your NJ Spine and Wellness doctor can consult with you on the best way to treat your specific condition. Various nerve decompression procedures include:

Spinal Decompression Therapy

Whether it’s due to a bulging or herniated disc, loosened ligament, thickened joint, bone spur, any other issue, pressure on your spinal nerves can be painful and even limit your mobility. By opting for spinal decompression therapy — like our state-of-the-art DRX9000 device, you can address your back and spine issues without the need for surgery. Talk to your NJ Spine and Wellness nerve decompression therapy specialist to decide what course of treatment is right for you and your specific condition.

Is Nerve Decompression Treatment Right for You?

While it depends on a case-by-case basis, the candidates who typically apply for nerve decompression treatment — including surgery like lumbar decompression — consist of patients who have already tried conservative methods like anti-inflammatory medications and physical therapy. Additionally, patients who experience symptoms like bladder or bowel incontinence or paralysis of the legs should consult with an NJ Spine and Wellness nerve decompression doctor immediately.
