My Child Has Spondylolysis - Part 3
Friday, December 1, 2017

This week we conclude our series on spondylolysis by addressing the question that is often the most pressing: 


How is spondylolysis treated?

Initial treatment for spondylolysis is always nonsurgical. Fortunately, these fractures often heal with a period of rest and core strengthening. To allow the bone to heal, the patient should take a break from sporting activities until the symptoms disappear. Physical therapy will be started to improve core strengthening and lumbar motion. Anti-inflammatory medication may be used for pain management. Education on lifestyle modifications have shown to be beneficial in managing symptoms.

While the patient is young and their discs are still healthy, they can return to normal function and perform well with no symptoms. In most cases, activities can be gradually resumed with few complications or recurrences. Exercises for the back and abdominal muscles can help prevent future recurrences of pain by stabilizing the spine. Periodic x-rays may be needed to ensure the vertebra is not changing position.

 

In rare cases, surgery may be needed if conservative treatment methods are ineffective in easing spondylolysis pain. This may also be the case if spondylolysis fractures widen and the condition progresses to a more advanced grade of spondylolisthesis.

 

If you or your child have received a spondylolysis diagnosis, please contact us to see how we can help.
