Slipped Disc

Low back pain can mean almost anything, but if you feel constant numbness or stiffness in part of your back, it could be spondylolisthesis. That's a mouthful for a slipped disc and you just want it fixed. We're proud to bring you an award-winning orthopedic team.

Spondylolisthesis, or slipped disc, is when a vertebra (usually in the lower back) moves forward far enough to slip onto the bone below. It’s most common in adults with arthritis, but can happen to anyone. It causes abnormal wear on the cartilage of the spinal cord. You may experience low back pain, tight hamstring muscles or tenderness where the vertebra is off-track.
