Diagnostic Steps and Spondylolisthesis

Non-Surgical Treatment

Approximately 5% of the population has a spondylolisthesis, but many of those people will never need any treatment. The grade of slip (grades 1-5) and your symptoms will help determine your treatment. You may need bed rest, medications, or bracing.

Surgical Solutions

If you are scheduled to have spinal surgery, one way to relieve your anxiety about the procedure is to learn all you can about the procedure.
