Spondylolisthesis

By March 12, 2015Symptoms

Spondylolisthesis occurs when the bones in your spine come together at several small joints that keep the bones lined up while still allowing them to move. Spondylolisthesis is caused by a problem with one or more of these small joints that allows one bone to move out of line.
Spondylolisthesis may be caused by any problems with the small joints in your book. You could have:-
• a defective joint that you’ve had since birth
• a joint damaged by an accident or other trauma
• A vertebra with a stress fracture caused from overuse of the joint
• A joint damaged by an infection or arthritis
Spondylolisthesis often affects children and teens that involved in sports. Some sports, such as gymnastics or weight lifting, can overuse back bones to the point of causing stress fractures invertebrate, which can lead to spondylolisthesis
What are the symptoms?
Symptoms of spondylolisthesis may include:-
• Back or buttock pain
• Pain that runs from the lower back down one or both legs
• Numbness or weakness in one or both legs
• Difficulty walking
• Leg, back or buttock pain that gets worse when you bend over or twist
• Less of bladder or bowel control, in rare cases sometime spondylolisthesis causes no symptoms at all.
How is it treated?
Treatment for spondylolisthesis begins with stopping any physical activity that may have led to vertebrae damage.
When pain is extreme or bones continue to move, or if there is nerve root or spinal cord damage related to the done to remove bone or other tissue to take pressure off the spinal cord or nerves. After any of these surgeries, you may need to wear a cast or back for a while. Later, rehabilitation therapy will help make your muscles stronger and movement easier.
