Spondylolisthesis

Advanced Treatment Options
for a Healthy, Pain-Free Life

Spondylolisthesis

Spondylolisthesis is a spinal condition that occurs when one of the bones or vertebrae slips out of place. It causes severe low back pain if the bone presses on a nerve. HealthQuest, a leading multi-specialty center in Brooklyn, NY, provides effective treatment for spondylolisthesis with the goal to relieve pain, stabilize the spinal segment, and stop or reverse the displacement.

Our pain management center is a useful resource for people of all ages who suffer from back pain due to degenerative causes, work-related conditions, accidents and other traumatic incidents, and sports injuries. We provide patients with customized treatment plans for spondylolisthesis based on factors such as age and overall health, the extent of the slippage, and the severity of the symptoms.

Multispecialty Approach for

Optimal Care

Our team includes neurologists, pain management doctors, orthopedists, and rehabilitation experts and this multispecialty approach leads to optimal treatment. Our specialists provide comprehensive care from initial diagnosis to rehabilitation in one convenient location.

Nonsurgical Modalities for

Pain Management

Blood tests, X-ray and MRI scan are used to diagnose the condition, with focus on ruling out other causes of back pain. The nonsurgical strategies we use to treat spondylolisthesis include the following:

  • Patients may be advised short periods of bed rest to ease symptoms. This would mean avoiding contact sports and not over-stretching the spine
  • Over-the-counter non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) may be administered to reduce pain, swelling and inflammation
  • Epidural steroid injections are given to lessen pain and inflammation
  • The physical therapy and exercise programs we provide are designed to improve flexibility, muscle strength and range of motion
  • Chiropractic care by trained chiropractors addresses the mechanical and neurological causes of the pain and improve functionality

Surgery could be recommended only in cases of severe spondylolisthesis.
