Spondylolisthesis is a disorder where one vertebral body is not in line with the imaginary line of the previous, or the following vertebral body, but is located in front of it. The distance of this body is from its normal position, is called grade of spondylolisthesis.
Spondylolisthesis is due to either an incomplete ossification of rear support components of the vertebral body, or, to a fracture of these. The result is that the body has an anteroposterior micro motion and sometimes it pushes the outgoing nerve. The patient complains that, when they sit for too long in a deep seat and stands up, they take a few steps to align their waist. In addition, episodes of low back pain have sudden onset and many times the pain stops abruptly in one go.
Besides the typical Back pain treatment, this particular disorder can be dramatically improved, with weight loss and muscle strengthening of the torso.
