  • A couple of words of caution, a spondylolysthesis is a slippage of one vertebra on another one. This can happen in varying degrees, from what is called a first degree all the way to a 4th degree or 100% slippage.....going to a chiropractor and letting them adjust you is NOT a wise idea with that particular condition. It can cause the slippage to become worse and also worsen your symptoms.
    Massage is okay, heat is okay but not so much on the adjustments.
    A pars is a bony bridge on the back of the vertebra, where the canal goes through the spine...so if I were you, I would hold off on the chiro for now, until you have talked to a surgeon and see if he recommends different treatments.
    I didn't and wound up far worse than I was before.
