The spine is the supporting structure of our body.Without him, we would not be able to stand, sit and walk.Spondylolisthesis is one of the most common back and neck problems.Simply put, it is a displacement or subluxation of one or more vertebrae.
If you have been diagnosed with this disease, it should be treated immediately to get rid of the problem at an early stage.
Vertebral displacement is usually accompanied by severe discomfort, pain and possible damage to internal organs due to irritation of nerve roots.
The human spine has 33-34 vertebrae.The least protected and most mobile part is the neck.That is why doctors are usually consulted when the cervical vertebrae are displaced.People are less likely to worry about the lumbar region.
What are the symptoms and causes of this disease, what should be the treatment and how many stages does the disease have?
Causes of pathology
There are many causes of this pathology, it can be:
destruction of bone tissue (usually due to age, starting from 60 years);
heavy loads on the spine (hard physical work or sports);
in infants, the cervical vertebrae may shift due to trauma during childbirth;
cervical, thoracic or lumbar vertebrae can also be affected by a failed operation or improper lifestyle when a person is in a sitting positi
Symptoms and signs of vertebral displacement
The symptoms of the pathology always depend on the location and extent of the problem.When any part of the vertebra is displaced, the nerve roots are either irritated or completely clamped.Inflammation occurs, and as a result the person experiences sharp pain.
The following symptoms are common symptoms:
acute or dull pain in any part of the spine;
numbness in the area of vertebral displacement;
signs of scoliosis;
tingling in the lower extremities or back.
Each area of pathology also has its own symptoms, but to identify the correct diagnosis will require additional examination.

If you do not start treatment early or misdiagnose the pathology, complications can occur in the form of other diseases.
The patient may have problems with vision, hearing, sore throat and laryngitis.Shoulder joints may be disturbed, neuritis.
