Spinal Therapy

Spinal decompression is used for treating spinal disc injuries that result in lumbar or leg pain and neck or arm pain. Surgical spinal decompression is performed by two common procedures – Micro-discectomy or micro decompression, an invasive procedure used for the removal of herniated nucleus pulposus with help of laser or other surgical instruments, and Laminectomy or open decompression, that involves removal of a small portion of the vertebra from the spine to ease the pressure on the nerve. Another remarkable surgical method known as Decompressive Laminotomy is highly effective for back pain and also improves patient’s walking capability.

SEVERE NECK PAIN AT BACK

Hi Doctor, I have neck pain for a few weeks, associated with Giddiness and Numbness. I couldn't tolerate the pain that I went to a General Medicine doctor, he said it is Muscle Spasm and he gave me some medicines. But they didnt relieve my pain so I went to an Ortho Doctor. He said my muscles are very stiff that they are pushing my neck bone to another side, and asked me to do Physio(IFT and US) for 10 days. I went to a Physiotherapist who said my muscles are very weak and he gave the treatments. But now after three days, I feel more pain, Numbness, Dizziness and Vomitting sensation during travel. Please help me with this. I am totally confused. Attached my X-Rays.
