What is Spondylolysis?

Description of the condition

Spondylolysis is a condition where there is a defect or fracture of the vertebral bones, typically in the lumbar region. This can cause issues with spinal mobility and lead to pain.


Spondylolysis can be classified as either degenerative or idiopathic.


  • Lower back pain
  • Limited spinal mobility
  • Weakness in the legs


Spondylolysis can be caused by physical trauma, congenital anomalies, or degenerative changes in the spine.


Spondylolysis can be diagnosed using X-rays, computed tomography, or magnetic resonance imaging.


Treatment for spondylolysis may involve physical therapy, wearing a brace, pain medication, and in some cases, surgical intervention.


Preventing spondylolysis involves strengthening the back muscles and maintaining proper posture.


The specialist who treats spondylolysis is an orthopedic surgeon or a neurosurgeon.
