  • Spondylolisthesis Treatment Options

    Spondylolisthesis refers to the forward slippage of one vertebrae on the one below it in the lumbar spine.It often occurs alongside spondylolisis and is most commonly seen among girls.Treatment for this condition consists of relative rest, physiotherapy, cross training as well as possible bracing for support. In most cases, conservative treatment is just what is needed, however, in very extreme cases, surgical options may need to be explored.
