Spondylolisthesis is a painful spinal condition that occurs when one of your lower vertebrae slips forward and lands on the bone directly beneath it.

Spondylolisthesis Diagnosis and Treatment at Inspira

While some people are genetically predisposed to the condition, others become afflicted due to an athletic injury. Playing sports that put stress on the low back, such as football, weightlifting and gymnastics, increases your risk of spondylolisthesis.

Pain and muscle stiffness in the low back and buttocks are the most notable symptoms. It is also common to experience pain radiating down one or both legs as a result of increased pressure on the nerve roots.

Physical therapies designed to strengthen abdominal and back muscles work well to alleviate pain and stabilize the low back. If physical therapy doesn’t work to sufficiently reduce pain, spinal fusion is often an effective surgical treatment option.
