Spondylolisthesis

Spondylolisthesis occurs when of the 33 vertebral bones that make up the spinal column slips forward on the adjacent neighboring vertebra. This condition can cause back and leg pain, as well as other symptoms. Spondylolisthesis can gradually cause a deformity of the lower spine, narrowing the spinal canal. This condition is most often due to degenerative/arthritic changes of the spine, but may also be caused by trauma or cancer.

During this COVID-19 pandemic, our goal at Pacific Pain Medicine Consultants is to provide patient’s with quality pain management treatment while still optimizing the health and safety of our patients, providers, and staff.

We are providing telemedicine visits for new and established patients. Patients with severe pain that warrant more urgent treatment with injections will be considered on a case-by-case basis. We will need to evaluate the patient’s age, medical comorbidities, and risk factors as well as potential symptoms of respiratory infection in making a determination. Elective pain procedures and injections are deferred at this time in order to minimize the potential spread of the coronavirus and to ration personal protect equipment so it may be available where it is most critically needed.
