Many: Spondylolisthesis is the slipping of 1 vertebral body on the other. This is not always painful. When it is, it can often be treated like any other form of back pain with exercise, nonnarcotic pain medication, and bracing. When the slippage results in the pinching of a nearby nerve, surgery usually with fusion of the bones may be helpful.

Good back care: The back must support the weight of the body. Proper back care is very important. Lose weight. Practice good posture both standing and sitting. Do good core exercises to strengthen the stomach muscles. Learn proper lifting techniques. Have a good therapist work with you on these issues. Develop a consistent program of daily exercise. Practice good health habits.
