The number of treatment sessions needed for surgical spinal decompression varies depending on the specific condition and severity of the patient’s symptoms. Unlike non-surgical spinal decompression, which typically involves multiple sessions over a period of weeks, surgical decompression is a one-time procedure.
After the procedure, patients will typically need to stay in the hospital for a few days to allow for observation and recovery. Once discharged, patients will be given specific instructions on post-surgical care, including when to begin physiotherapy and how to gradually return to normal activities.
For non-surgical spinal decompression, a treatment plan will typically consist of multiple sessions over a period of several weeks, with each session lasting between 30 to 45 minutes. The total number of sessions needed can range from 20 to 28 sessions, but this can be more or less depending on the severity of your condition and your body’s response to the treatment. It is important to follow the recommended plan and attend all scheduled sessions for the best chance of achieving optimal results.
