Non-surgical treatment for spondylolisthesis

Spondylolisthesis treatment without surgery should be implemented as soon as possible to avoid complications and before requiring surgical intervention. Here we will tell you a little more about the novel treatment of the CCV. If you need more information about the causes of this condition, at the end of this post you will find links to additional information.


Spondylolisthesis is the sliding of one vertebra over another, which can cause pressure on the nerves and acute pain, as well as loss of mobility. The most common symptom is pain in the lower back that can radiate into the legs.

When is surgery required?

Severe cases ofspondylolisthesis may require surgery to: remove the part of the bone that is causing the nerve pressure or a bone transplant to give stability to the spine. These are delicate procedures and may not be definitive. For this reason, it is recommended that this condition be detected and treated in the early stages (grade I and II) to avoid the complications of surgery.

Non- surgical treatment for spondylolisthesis

The non-surgical treatment for spondylolisthesis consists of relieving the immediate symptoms, such as back pain, and at the same time strengthening the muscles that cover the spine to give it greater strength and stability. At the CCV we base this treatment on 4 core elements :

  • Physical therapy and rehabilitation It consists of exercises, massages and other actions to reduce pain and inflammation in the back.
  • Direct injection of medicines. Analgesic drugs are injected directly into the affected area, which accelerates the remission of inflammation
  • Ozone therapy. Improves the oxygenation of the spinal tissues, promoting their natural healing.

In the vast majority of cases this regimen has a positive impact, as it can restore mobility, eliminate pain and be a long-term solution.
