What is Spondylolisthesis?

As the preferred NY pain management center for thousands of state residents, NY Spine and Rehab Medicine provides relief and treatment for a number of maladies. From minor aches and pains to serious back-related injuries, the team at NY Spine and Rehab Medicine is dedicated to the health and happiness of each and every one of our patients. For the many people who suffer from back pain in New York City, our staff diligently works around the clock to provide comfort and resolution to what ails our patients.

Spondylolisthesis is one of the many spine-related illnesses that NY Spine and Rehab Medicine treats. When this condition develops, the spine slips forward and nerve roots within the spinal column become pinched as a result. This can be caused as a result of two variations of the disease: degenerative spondylolisthesis and isthmic spondylolisthesis.

With the degenerative variation of this illness, slippage of the spine happens as a result of the weakening of facet joints, while isthmic spondylolisthesis is a result of vertebral bone fractures. In any spondylolisthesis condition, pain is constantly felt by the sufferer and pervades throughout the lower portions of the body.

NY Spine and Rehab Medicine treats even the most advanced forms of spondylolisthesis. Should you begin to feel the potential symptoms of this condition and experience tingling or pain in your lower extremities, seek us out for lower back pain treatment.
