Has anyone had a Pars Defect, what kind of treatment have you had. I have been told to get a Bivalve Brace and take some nerve conducting meds. and Naproxen for pain.
Any advice or experiences shared is welcome.


  • Sorry i cant be of any assistance. Im in the same boat you are. I have a pars 5 defect as well as slight scoliosis. Any advice would be wonderful!
    Thanks Everyone!
  • You can read about a pars defect here: http://www.spine-health.com/conditions/spondylolisthesis/spondylolysis-treatments

    Sometimes it will heal on its own. If it results in too much instability, and one vertebra slips over the top of the one beneath it, then surgery may be required.

    Where in the spine are you having the problem? I'm not quite sure what you mean by a "nerve conducting" medication.
