Treating Spondylolisthesis in Los Angeles, Orange County, Riverside County, San Bernardino County, San Diego
Certain types of activities engaged in can make an individual more susceptible to a condition in which a vertebrae in the spine slips over another vertebrae, or Spondylolisthesis. Many individuals who engage in certain sports are prone to this condition, especially gymnastics, weightlifting and other sports in which the individual turns while carrying weight or exerting pressure. The injury can also be common in those who lift heavy items while turning in their work. The condition can be extremely painful, particularly in certain positions, and must be treated in order to try to resolve the injury. Both active children and adults can suffer from this condition. Our medical team at Southern California Center for Neuroscience and Spine at Chapman Medical Center is familiar with all the current treatments for this injury.
Each case may require different and specific treatment. Any spine injury should be addressed by an expert in spinal injuries, as how the condition is treated must be carefully determined. The least invasive treatment is always sought and in many cases it is possible to resolve the condition and the individual can go back to their normal activities in a period of time. Other serious cases could possibly require a surgical intervention. The injury must be fully evaluated through the use of X-Ray or CT Scan or other testing in order to determine what medical solution would be best applied.
Most cases require bed rest and avoiding certain activities until the condition is resolved. You may not be able to play your favorite sport until the condition is healed. Careful management of the condition usually results in a resolution, and you can be sure that our spinal injury medical team will advise you what rehabilitation and restriction of movement may be necessary in the injury.
