Nonoperative Treatment

Treatment is prescribed to decrease any acute spasm and restore spinal flexibility. One of the mainstays of physical therapy treatment is to perform truncal core strengthening exercises. The therapist will caution the patient on avoiding hyperextension maneuvers and excessive abdominal "crunches".
CORE Excercises

Prognosis is affected by the amount of slippage. In general, most patients with less than 50% slippage fend to fare well through adolescence. With slippage of 50% or greater, the potential for additional slippage with growth and aging is greater. The small numbers of patients who do not respond to conservative medical management are evaluated for a spinal fusion.
