Spondylolisthesis Reno NVPeople With Spondylolisthesis Can Find Relief in Reno, NV

Spondylolisthesis is one of the many conditions treated at Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic’s Reno, Nevada, facility. This condition occurs when one of your vertebrae (usually one in your lower back) slides forward (“anterolisthesis”) or backward (“retrolisthesis”) over the one below. While some people are born with this condition, others develop it after sustaining an injury, or as a result of degeneration, arthritis, or an infection. Men are more likely than women to develop spondylolisthesis, and also to experience symptoms related to the condition.
The experts at our Reno, NV, location can help you assess your symptoms and determine whether they may be related to spondylolisthesis. Although many patients with spondylolisthesis experience no symptoms whatsoever, the following symptoms may indicate that you are suffering from this condition:

  • Back, buttock, and/or leg pain
  • Back muscle spasms
  • Leg numbness
  • Leg weakness
  • Leg stiffness
  • Feeling of tightness in the hamstrings
  • Decreased range of motion in the legs
  • Limping and/or waddling
  • Sway back posture (where the pelvis is pushed forward)
  • Loss of control over the bladder and/or bowels (very rarely)

We generally recommend that patients with spondylolisthesis first attempt a conservative course of treatment, potentially consisting of rest, physical therapy, hot/cold therapy, pain medication, corticosteroid injections, or a brace. If you do require surgery, you may benefit from a decompressive laminectomy, where we remove the section of the lamina (the back part of the vertebrae) that is irritating the surrounding nerves in order to relieve your pain, or a spinal fusion, where we use a bone graft to increase spinal stability.
If you’re concerned that you might have spondylolisthesis, please contact our Reno, NV, office so that we can help you schedule an examination with one of our orthopedic specialists. We look forward to helping you regain your function and restore your quality of life.

I truly wish I could give them more than just 5 stars!

"I couldn’t have asked for better care for my son than from the staff at Tahoe Fracture and Orthopedic. From the receptionist all the way up to the surgeon, we were treated with the utmost respect, kindness, patience, and care. They were not only quick to get him in for an examination, but were amazingly quick to fit him into the schedule to have his injury treated asap!! Thanks to them, my son is now on the road to recovery. I truly wish I could give them more than just five stars!"

Thanks Doc!

"Dr. Mike Fry is a wonderful doctor and caring person. When I saw him for the first time, he held my hand and said, “I’m going to make you well”, and he did! I had back surgery 2.5 years ago and still doing great. Thanks Doc!"

We were deeply impressed with the entire experience.

"We were deeply impressed with the entire experience. Candace should be commended for her work ethic. Also my experience with the x-ray tech was outstanding. I would not change anything."

Dr. Fry and the entire staff were excellent.

"My entire experience was just as good as I had planned…a great day! Dr. Fry and the entire staff were excellent. Thanks a lot!"

I cannot express how much of a difference this has made in my life.

"Dr. Jones and his staff through the surgical procedures and other methods they have performed over the years have enhanced my daily living experience dramatically. I am leading a more productive life without the daily pain I dealt with in the past. I cannot express how much of a difference this has made in my life."
