Yes: This is also called degenerative spondylo and is dueit to degenaration of the facet joints.It also produces some degree of spinal stenosisand some impigment of the nerve roots and hence some radiculopathy that can give you the symptoms you are expiriencing now. ...Read more

I have a grade 1 spondylolisthesis l4/l5/s1 with stenosis.  My pain would be described as burning and a feeling of heaviness in my lower back . ?

Common: Spondylolisthesis commonly causes back pain. Lumbar stenosis commonly causes leg pain, numbness especially with extended activity. Weight control and core muscle exercises are a first step. If these don't help, consultation with a neurosurgeon or orthopedic spine surgeon would be a reasonable next step. ...Read more

Mild scoliosis; grade 1 spondylolisthesis l5-s1; l4-5 prom l paracentral disc extrusion; mild ligamentous & facet hypertrophy. Treatments?

Depends: Most disks get better within 6 months with pt and conservative treatment, assuming that the disk is even related to the pain. Keep an eye on spondy to make sure it's stable. If you develop instability surgery may be in order. ...Read more

There's grade 2 anterolisthesis of L5 on s1 with severe loss of disk height. Moderate loss of disk height at l3-4 and l4-5. Pars defects l5. Needsurg?

Not necessarily: Those findings are relatively common, especially in persons who have practiced sports in their younger age. Surgery is only recommended on the basis of disabling symptoms, and after conservative treatment and alternative measures such as epidural injections have failed. ...Read more

Grade 2 anterolisthesis L5 on s1 with severe loss of disk height. Moderate loss of disk height at l3-4 and l4-5. Pars defect at l5. Right leg goes numb after standing still for 5 min or more. Surgery?

Spinal pain: It certainly time to consider advanced treatments, diagnosis, and possibly surgery. You have a bad spine with multiple pathologies. It's important to figure out if you have active ongoing nerve damage. An EMG will give you the information that you need. If you don't have active nerve damage try everything else (injections, decompression, chiro, pt) before surgery as many can avoid surgery. ...Read more

Can L4 anterolisthesis & L5 posterolisthesis on s1 with bilateral pars defect at L4 cause venous insufficiency in both legs? If so why?

Can L4 anterolisthesis & L5 posterolisthesis on s1 with bilateral pars defect at L4 cause venous insufficiency in both legs? If so why?

No: Bone, and discs, not vascular and would be incredibly unusual to slip, enough to compress major veins. Trauma, coagulopathy, DVT lead to venous valvular leakage- insufficiency. ...Read more

Pain! how to treat, chiro? X-ray shows spina bifida occulta@l5, grade1 anterolisthesis of L5 w/spondylosis, mild disc space height loss@l4-5&l5-s1

Too little info: As dr. Hines says, a neurosurgeon can help differentiate all of the above and provide you with the best treatment options for your condtion. There are many factors to consider- your age, how much spondylosis, pain location, duration, relief, exacerbation, general health, etc. See a neurosurgeon for some good answers. Best of luck to you. ...Read more
