Spondylolisthesis is treated with the strengthening of supportive abdominal and back muscles through physical therapy. Treatment may include:
- Anti-inflammatory medicines, including ibuprofen or naproxen
- Steroid shots
- Physical therapy
If you have tried non-surgical treatments but still have symptoms and experience severe pain, depending upon the severity of cases, the doctors will perform the surgery with the aid of the latest technology.
Sometimes, Spondylolisthesis comes back a second time. This happens more often when the Spondylolisthesis is of a higher grade. If you’ve had surgery for Spondylolisthesis, you’ll most likely do well. Most people get back to normal activities within a few months of surgery. But your spine won’t be as flexible as it was before.
