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.

Ideal Candidates for an Indirect Compression Device?

Talk with the doctors about this procedure if you have any of the following symptoms:

  • Leg, buttock, and groin pain
  • Numbness, weakness, cramping or stiffness in the legs or buttocks
  • Difficulty walking or standing but experience relief in the seated or flexed position
  • You have been diagnosed with Lumbar Spinal Stenosis

Benefits of an Indirect Compression Device for Pain

  • Safe and effective alternative when conservative treatment has failed and laminectomy is too aggressive.
  • Ensures controlled movement and minimizes post-procedure complications.
  • When using an indirect compression device, patients may be able to reduce oral pain medications and their side effects.
  • Available in multiple sizes to accommodate varying patient anatomy.
  • Simple outpatient procedure with rapid recovery time and no destabilization of the spine.
