Spondylolisthesis and Lumbar Disc Herniation Treatment

Spondylolisthesis refers to the anterior (forward) or retro

(backward) displacement of a bone present in the

vertebral column. This displacement can lead to the

misalignment of vertebral bones, this is not like a

herniated disc, but the condition can coexist. In

spondylolisthesis, usually bony vertebra slips while in

herniated disc, soft interior of the spinal disc slips, in some

cases it bulges through a tear in the disc’s outer layer. The

spinal deformity is of different types such as degenerative

spondylolisthesis, pathogenic, congenital, and traumatic


and results in lower back pain. Among children, it is a

result of traumatic injury or birth defect and in adults, it is a

result of natural wear and tear because of aging and

arthritis.
