How is spondylolisthesis treated?
At the Spine Program at Children’s Hospital Colorado, we treat low-grade spondylolisthesis conservatively. Conservative treatment includes rest from activities and sports, anti-inflammatory medications and physical therapy. Your child’s doctor may also recommend a back brace.
If the slip gets worse, or your child has continued pain, we may recommend surgery.
