Hello, new member here.

Just wanted to know if anyone has any experience with spondylolisthesis and running & weight lifting. I am interested in both of these but am unsure how my back will react. Have been lifting a little bit of weight and getting some walking in and that's going ok so far. I do understand how important it is to work my core...so I'm doing that as well. just don't want to go overboard and end up flat on my back. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.


  • To start with what is wrong with your back?
    Your best bet is to see you Medical Dr and have xray and or MRI. I am one that has always been athletic until 2 back injuries in 2004 and then another in 2008. it is important to strengthen your core because that helps support your back. But I would not do this with out Dr. orders and then he will also be able to tell you what you can and can not do. He/she will most likely send you through therapy.
    Don't take chances with your back.
