Effective Treatments to Aid in Listhesis Recovery
Listhesis occurs when one vertebral body slips forward over another and can be treated in many ways. It can occur due to an underlying condition of spondylolysis and may include different types from degenerative to pathologic.
To learn more, Advanced Spine and Knee Hospital will share effective treatments to treat the said condition:
- Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation
TENS is a passive treatment that involves the usage of a machine to stimulate muscles through various intensities of electrical currents. It’s effective in reducing muscle spasms and potentially increases endorphin production to ease the pain.
- Deep tissue massage
This passive treatment targets spasms and chronic muscle tension. Through regular pain interventions in Telangana, it readjusts the slipped vertebra by applying direction friction and pressure to release tension in the lower back’s soft tissues.
- Alternate hot and cold therapy
Hot therapy increases blood flow, while cold therapy or cryotherapy slows down circulation to reduce pain and inflammation in the target area.
For severe symptomatic Listhesis, patients may undergo various surgical procedures like total endoscopic alignment and fusion. Here are similar surgical procedures which are available through our pain management center:
- Open surgery with decompression and fixation
This surgical procedure alleviates pain caused by neural impingement in the spine. It’s recommended when physical therapy and medication haven’t alleviated the symptoms and will take 4-6 weeks to recover.
- Minimally invasive spine surgery
MISS is conducted on the spine that uses smaller incisions to reduce the risk of harming nearby muscles and tissues, which leads to lesser pain and faster recovery.
