Conservative treatment with spontaneous stabilization of Grade II isthmic spondylolisthesis L5/S1 in a forty-four-year old woman, with a six-year follow-up: a case report
European Journal of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine, 06/07/2012Ferrari S et al.
This case study reports a forty–four–year old woman, with isthmic spondylolisthesis, where the spine surgeon recommended physiotherapy for conservative treatment, with a prognosis of possible spontaneous stabilization. The case was followed for six years, both clinically and radiologically. Treatment was based on a specific stabilising training program (motor control), immediately aimed to improve the disability and pain factors while waiting for a possible spontaneous stabilisation, that the latest radiological exams revealed with an attempt of arthrodesis.
