Spondylolisthesis Treatment from Physicians Rehabilitation
If persistent spondylolisthesis symptoms have left you seeking treatment, turn to the specialists at Physicians Rehabilitation. We utilize advanced, evidence-based techniques to help patients overcome painful musculoskeletal conditions and get back to life without potent narcotics or extensive surgery.
What is spondylolisthesis?
Spondylolisthesis is a common spinal condition that occurs when a vertebra shifts beyond its normal boundaries in one direction. It is often referred to as vertebral slippage, although it does not cause a vertebra to “slip” entirely out of place. This condition can be caused by a number of factors, from the body’s natural degeneration process to playing high-impact sports like football or basketball. Spondylolisthesis doesn’t always cause symptoms, but when it does, patients may experience muscle weakness, localized or radiating pain, stiffness, and spasms.
How is spondylolisthesis treated?
Spondylolisthesis treatment may take several forms depending on what part of the spine is affected and the severity of the slippage. At Physicians Rehabilitation, we take a comprehensive approach to spondylolisthesis treatment to address symptoms from multiple angles. Patients in our program visit us about 15 times over the course of six to eight weeks, during which they may receive strategically administered physical therapy, chiropractic care, spinal decompression, a minimally invasive nerve block procedure, and other advanced back pain treatments.
Even if other doctors have told you that traditional surgery is your best course of spondylolisthesis treatment, we encourage you to visit Physicians Rehabilitation to learn about your options. To schedule your no-cost consultation, contact our friendly staff today
