Spinal Decompression to Help Treat Patients in Reno, NV and Carson City Suffering from Chronic Back PainSpinal Decompression Carson City NV

Spinal decompression is a type of spine surgery used to relieve pressure on a pinched nerve root (a nerve that branches off the spinal cord) in the neck or back. In some cases, this type of surgery can be recommended to decompress the spinal cord itself, which can sometimes become pinched due to a severely herniated disc or other spine condition. For patients in the Reno, Nevada and Carson City area, our Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic offers spinal decompression and other types of spine surgery to treat your pain and help you regain your quality of life.

The most common causes for a patient to need spinal decompression include:

  • Herniated disc
  • Bulging disc
  • Bone spur
  • Spinal arthritis
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Degenerative disc
  • Spinal bone spurs

These conditions can cause a nerve root or the spinal cord itself to be compressed, which leads to a series of painful symptoms. Before a patient is recommended for spinal decompression, non-surgical treatments are performed in an attempt at pain relief, and for many patients, they are effective. These methods often include physical therapy, pain medication, and hot/cold compresses, to name a few. For patients in Reno and Carson City, these treatments can be recommended by our physical therapists and orthopedic doctors at Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic.

If these treatments are not effective methods of pain relief, you may be recommended for surgery. During a spinal decompression, the orthopedic surgeon will remove the piece of damage spine (whether a bone spur, herniated disc, or other spine condition) from compressing the pinched nerve or spinal cord. Once this pressure is released, your symptoms should begin to subside. In some cases, metal rods or screws are needed to stabilize the spine if a significant piece of spinal anatomy is removed. After surgery, physical therapy and other low-impact exercises and stretches are recommended to help improve a patient’s mobility and overall spine health.

I truly wish I could give them more than just 5 stars!

"I couldn’t have asked for better care for my son than from the staff at Tahoe Fracture and Orthopedic. From the receptionist all the way up to the surgeon, we were treated with the utmost respect, kindness, patience, and care. They were not only quick to get him in for an examination, but were amazingly quick to fit him into the schedule to have his injury treated asap!! Thanks to them, my son is now on the road to recovery. I truly wish I could give them more than just five stars!"

Thanks Doc!
