I am 19 years old and have always been very active, but for nearly a year I have had increasing back pain due to spondylylosthesis between L5-S1 cause by a pars defect in L5.
I am looking for a surgeon who can perform a direct pars repair (rather than a fusion), preferably in Australia, but so far no luck. Does anyone know of any?
I desperately want to return to sport as I was training 6 days per week before the pain stopped me and don't know what to do with myself now.
Conservative therapy has lessened the pain, but it is still there and this therapy won't allow me to return to an active lifestyle.
Any advice or information would be greatly appreciated,
