Treatments for Slipped Disc

Treatment for spondylolisthesis, also known as slipped disc, depends on the severity of your symptoms. Typically, your care plan starts with rest, medicine and physical therapy. A non-surgical approach is usually enough to alleviate pain.

What if you’ve made all the lifestyle changes recommended and are still in pain? Usually if pain or other symptoms persist after six months, your doctor may suggest surgery. Surgery is effective, but does have a long recovery period. Discuss your preferences and options with your doctor.
