What is Laminectomy Surgery?
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
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.

Lumbar spinal stenosis is considered as the most common of all types of spinal stenosis. In this condition, the spinal canal narrows and presses the nerves which transmit the nerve impulse to the lower back of our body, causing severe pain. It is considered as the most common cause of pain leg and lower back.
