Spondylolisthesis and Spondylolysis Treatments

Spondylolisthesis and spondylolysis are typically diagnosed with radiographic imaging. Treatment includes conservative measures with bracing. If pain is associated, anti-inflammatories, muscle relaxants, physical therapy, home exercises and core strengthening are recommended. The patient will also typically follow up on an annual basis to assess for progression, which can be corrected surgically. If surgical intervention is warranted, it is typically associated with stenosis or significant instability.
