Spondylolisthesis is a lower back pain condition that involves the vertebrae of the lumbar spine to slip forward out of alignment from the vertebra below them. This puts extra stress on the ligaments, nerves, and muscles in the low back area and almost always generates pain in the patient.
- Low back pain
- Tight or muscle spasms of the low back
- Radiating pain to buttocks or thighs
- Muscle Weakness
- Hyperextension of the spine
- Sports such as football, weight lifting, and gymnastics
- Birth Defect
Patients usually present to the clinic with low back pain and undergo standard orthopedic testing and a detailed medical history in office. The next diagnostic step is to order an x-ray of the lumbar spine looking for changes of the curvature and fractures. For more detailed diagnostics, doctors will order either a CT scan or MRI to assess connective tissue damage or nerve involvement.
Treatment begins with conservative care such as resting, icing and taking over the counter nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). If the patient does not respond to conservative care, back bracing and physical therapy may be tried. For severe cases, doctors may administer an epidural for temporary pain relief or recommend surgery. The surgery is called a spinal fusion and basically welds the lower spine vertebrae together to help immobilize the area for pain relief. The surgery can achieve long term relief in some cases.
Stem Cell Therapy Spondylolisthesis Pain Relief
Stem cell therapy spondylolisthesis pain relief injections target the area of the spine that has slipped forward. This works by treating the ligaments that hold the vertebra in place above and below the slipped vertebra. When the vertebra moves forward the ligaments are pulled, and they essentially become weak and loose. This generates pain and hyper-mobility of the spine at that particular level. By targeting and strengthening the ligaments that hold the spinal bones in place, the vertebra begins to go back into alignment. Pain relief soon follows as the strength and stability improve. Some providers will also directly treat the discs in the area if they believe it to be a contributing source of pain. This has to be done under image guidance for safety.
Stem Cell Therapy Benefits:
- Pain Relief
- Relatively Fast Recovery Time
- Non-Surgical / Non-Invasive
- Strengthens Ligaments, Tendons, Cartilage, and Connective Tissue
- Utilizes your Natural Growth Factors / Cells
- Cost Effective compared to Surgery
Stem Cell Therapy spondylolisthesis pain relief treatments are a revolutionary new cutting-edge option that achieves long lasting pain relief. The treatment is very different from conventional approaches but ultimately has the same goal of decreasing excessive joint movement. This is achieved through strengthening the supporting ligaments which generates the pain relief. Patients are able to recover quickly from the procedure and return to normal activities and hobbies in many cases.
