Laminectomy, is a surgical intervention leading to the removal of a part of the vertebral bone called the Lamina. Also known as decompression surgery it relieves pressure from the Spinal Cord and Nerves by enlarging the spinal Canal.
In December of 2015, we at JP Nagar Medical and Physiotherapy Centre had a Patient from Norway who undergone Laminectomy Surgery 3 month before and had come to us for Post-Operative Physiotherapy.
Chief Complaints were:
- Unable to walk properly
- Radiating pain in LL
We recommended her for 4 Weeks of Physiotherapy Care at our Centre.
Physiotherapy Interventions We included:
- Physical modalities
- Manual Therapy
- Back Education Program
- Progressive lumbar ROM exercises
- Exercises for the Lower Limbs
- slouch-overcorrect procedure

- Functional exercises
After 32 sessions of treatment the progressive results were Phenomenal, the patient was able to do normal day to day activities actively and without pain. With the conclusion of treatment we were glad to hear and see the progress in pain reduction and postural rehabilitation of the patient.
The results and feedback inspires us to keep continuing our good work and encourages us to do more better.
