Laminectomy is done to create a space by removing the lamina, which is the back part of the vertebra that covers the spinal canal. Your doctor will also remove bone spurs or other structures that cause spinal stenosis.

Non-surgical spinal decompression therapy is a type of motorized traction that can relieve your back pain due to spinal stenosis. The therapy aims to stretch the spine gently, thereby changing the force and position of the spine. The purpose of therapy is to relieve pain and promote a healing environment for the spine.

Spinal stenosis is the narrowing of spaces within spine (narrowing of the spine), which can put pressure on the nerves that extend through the spine. It mostly affects the lower back and the neck. Some people with spinal stenosis may not experience symptoms. To diagnose the condition, your doctor will review your medical history and conduct a physical examination.
