Back Pain May Be Lumbar Spondylolisthesis

July 12, 2017

Lumbar Spondylolisthesis occurs when a lumbar vertebra slips out of place. One vertebra slips forward, distorting the shape of the lumbar spine, and may compress the nerves in the spinal canal. The nerves that exit the foramen (open spaces on the sides of your vertebrae) may also be compressed. These compressions can cause pain and other problems.  But, there’s hope for relief.

Mick Perez-Cruet, M.D., presented recent studies and shows how lumbar spondylolisthesis is being treated.  To schedule an appointment with Dr. Perez-Cruet, please call 877-784-3667, or online.
