What is an Indirect Compression Device?
An indirect compression device is a device utilized to relieve pain by acting as an extension blocker in the spine. It relieves pressure on the affected nerves in the same way it would be achieved if a patient was in a seated or flexed position. For those patients with Lumbar Spinal Stenosis, it can provide great relief with a simple outpatient procedure. This new and minimally invasive procedure has a rapid recovery time and involves no destabilization of the spine.
