Spondylolisthesis occurs when a spinal segment or vertebra slides forward over the segment below it. It commonly occurs in the lower spine or lumbosacral area. In cases where the spinal cord or nerve roots are being squeezed, symptoms can include back pain and numbness or weakness in one or both legs. Some patients experience no pain at all whilst others can have pain in the lower back and into the buttocks and tightness or weakness in the leg, which may result in a limp.
In some cases, it can also lead to losing control over your bladder or bowels, in such circumstances, you should see your Chiropractor or Hospital Emergency Department right away.
Relief is possible with the right care and Cox flexion distraction provides the option of non-surgical care. Research has shown that in cases of stable Spondylolisthesis patients were 75% relieved of pain with Cox flexion distraction.
