I was diagnosed April 2016 with Spondylolithesis in my L5 S1
Spondylolisthesis is a condition in which one bone in your back (vertebra) slides forward over the bone below it. …
You have pain when you walk, pain when you sit, pain when you stand somedays it’s overwhelming
I’m a grade one at least I was in April 2016
Well let’s say since 2012
You see I had a back issue in 2012 went to my former dr
Who ordered Xray on my back, I was told I had OA
I was never told I had Spondylolithesis or any slippage
I found out I had Spondylolithesis and a par fracture in 2016 under the care of my new amazing PCP.
In my opinion if you want better health care see a woman doctor.
A diagnosis for a bilateral pars fracture is scary.
A pars defect or spondylolysis is a stress fracture of the bones of the lower spine. These fractures typically occur due to overuse. They can be on one or both sides of the vertebrae. It is a common cause of low back pain in children and adolescents. The most common cause of low back pain is muscular, secondary to overuse or deconditioning.
A pars fracture or defect-
A commonly adopted method of grading spondylolisthesis is the Meyerding classification, based on the ratio of [overhanging part of the superior vertebral body] to [anteroposterior length of the adjacent inferior vertebral body]:
grade I: 0-25%
grade II: 26-50%
grade III: 51-75%
grade IV: 76-100%
grade V (spondyloptosis): >100%
I went to p t a few times for Spondylolithesis in 2016
It helped some but pain never really went away.
Here are some videos I use at home as well
