Slipped vertebra (spondylolisthesis) – our treatment
A slipped vertebra, medically called spondylolisthesis, is a quite common condition with various causes, which often causes you no pain at all at first. Only when such instability causes symptoms, for example when the slipped vertebra presses on nerves, does appropriate therapy become necessary. Conservative therapies, such as stabilising physiotherapeutic exercises and painkillers (drugs), are usually at the beginning of your slipped vertebra treatment. If these no longer help you sufficiently against your pain or if you even have neurological deficits, surgery can be a suitable measure to eliminate your slipped vertebra permanently. Our multi-award-winning spine specialists at Schoen Clinic Neustadt specialise in the surgical treatment of a slipped vertebra and, wherever possible, use state-of-the-art, gentle surgical techniques to relieve compressed nerves and stabilise your spine or restore it to its original shape to relieve your pain.
