I have been wearing a brace for the last 5 years for this condition. Pain is controlled with the brace, therefore I have been trying to put off spinal fusion as there doesn't seem to be a real guarantee.
When I take the brace off, I can not walk very far at all or stand very long, but with the brace on, I can get around and function moderately well.
1.) Has anyone had success with PROLOTHERAPY for isthmic spondylolisthesis ?
2.) Does anyone recommend any other conservative treatments ?
3.) I have many surgical options, ALIF, PLIF, TLIF or ALIF 360.
I am looking for feedback from those that had surgery !
