Learn More About Your Painful Back Condition Below
Spondylolisthesis is the displacement of one spinal vertebra compared to another. While some medical dictionaries define spondylolisthesis specifically as the forward or anterior displacement of a vertebra over the vertebra inferior to it (or the sacrum),it is often defined in medical textbooks as displacement in any direction. Spondylolisthesis is grade d based upon the degree of slippage of one vertebral body relative to the subsequent adjacent vertebral body. Spondylolisthesis is classified as one of the six major etiologies: degenerative, traumatic, dysplastic, isthmic, pathologic, or post-surgical. Spondylolisthesis most commonly occurs in the lumbar spine, primarily at the L5-S1 level with the L5 vertebral body anteriorly translating over the S1 vertebral body.
A general stiffening of the back and a tightening of the hamstrings, with a resulting change in both posture and gait.
A leaning-forward or semi-kyphotic posture may be seen, due to compensatory changes.
A “waddle” may be seen in more advanced causes, due to compensatory pelvic rotation due to decreased lumbar spine rotation.
A result of the change in gait is often a noticeable atrophy in the gluteal muscles due to lack of use.
Generalized lower-back pain may also be seen, with intermittent shooting pain from the buttocks to the posterior thigh, and/or lower leg via the sciatic nerve.
Other symptoms may include tingling and numbness. Coughing and sneezing can intensify the pain. An individual may also note a “slipping sensation” when moving into an upright position. Even sitting and trying to stand up may be painful and difficult. We can help you find pain relief quickly.
