Spondylolisthesis

When one vertebral body slips over the other, it is referred to as spondylolisthesis. It can occur forward, backward or sideward. It commonly occurs in the lower back and neck.

How Do I Know if I have Spondylolisthesis

Symptoms of spondylolisthesis include local pain, pain that radiates into the arms or legs, depending on where your condition is. There may also be muscle tightness or stiffness in the area of the injury, as well as a reduced range of motion. Symptoms will worsen as the condition is allowed to progress. There are five grades of spondylolisthesis that represent how progressed your condition is.

What is the Right Treatment for Me?

Conservative spondylolisthesis treatment includes physical therapy with emphasis on building core muscles to better support the spinal structure. A back brace may also be suggested to help align the spine. Anti inflammatory medication may be helpful as well, pain medication may also be prescribed for short term use. Only once conservative treatments have been exhausted should surgery be considered.
