Spondylolisthesis

What is Spondylolisthesis?

Spondylolisthesis is a condition that affects the spine as we age. The condition occurs when one of the vertebras in the spine slips forward onto the one below it. Spondylolisthesis usually develops as we age and is a result of bones, joints, and ligaments in the spine weakening and being less able to hold the structure of the spinal column in proper alignment. Degenerative spondylolisthesis begins to show itself in patients over 50 years of age and becomes much more common in after the age of 65.


Spondylolisthesis can sometimes be treated non-surgically using block or steroid injections. In some cases it is necessary to perform a minimally invasive spinal fusion procedure, and prevent further deterioration.
