Spondylolisthesis treatment approaches vary depending on the severity of the condition and the patient’s health and personal preferences. Although surgery is recommended for some very advanced cases of spinal slippage, it isn’t the only available approach to managing associated pain and other symptoms. At Pain Care, we believe in providing patients with a personalized approach to care, taking the time to examine each one, provide a proper diagnosis, and then formulate a treatment plan. This approach has made us a trusted resource for people in the Metro Atlanta, Georgia, area who have chronic spine conditions and other sources of pain.
Many people who experience spondylolisthesis find nonsurgical treatment to be a useful way of managing symptoms, allowing them to get back to the activities they may have been missing out on. Pain Care’s board-certified physicians work to find the most effective and least invasive method of controlling symptoms for our Atlanta, GA, patients, with the understanding that there’s no one-size-fits-all answer. Depending on each patient’s specific needs, we may recommend one or more of the following spondylolisthesis treatment approaches:
- Regular, low-impact physical exercise
- Stretching and other physical therapies
- Medications, including anti-inflammatory drugs and pain relievers, as needed
- Epidural steroid injections
We don’t just try to find an effective approach to managing pain, we also insist on establishing and maintaining a compassionate relationship with our patients. Sometimes, spondylolisthesis treatment involves trying different methods to see which ones work best for a particular patient, so it’s important to have knowledgeable and caring professionals ready to help throughout that process.
Whether you have received spondylolisthesis treatment elsewhere, or you’re turning to Pain Care as your first choice for care, we’re ready to help you. To learn more about the locations we have throughout the Metro Atlanta, GA, area, or to schedule an appointment, contact us today.
