What is a Thoracic Decompression?
Are you experiencing pain in your upper back? Does it radiate through your chest or belly? Does it intensify when you cough or sneeze? Any of these symptoms could indicate a thoracic herniated disc. The problem can also manifest as problems with balance or walking, numbness or tingling, or even problems with bladder or bowel issues.
Patients who experience pain with or without associated arm pain, weakness, numbness, and tingling may be helped by the thoracic procedure. Prior to this procedure, patients should have attempted more conservative therapies such as physical therapy, chiropractic care, pain medications and epidural steroid injection.
The thoracic spine is the largest portion of your spine, consisting of twelve vertebrae. It acts to stabilize your core, helping the ribs protect your organs and allowing free, unencumbered upright motion.
Since it needs to be less flexible than the other potions of the spine, the discs between the vertebrae are thinner and the spinal opening is narrower. This can make it easier for the bulging matter of a herniated disk to press on or pinch the spine and associated nerves.
