Anterolisthesis is a spine condition in which the upper vertebral body, the drum-shaped area in front of each vertebra, slips forward onto the vertebra beneath. Anterolisthesis symptoms can vary greatly depending on whether or not the slippage pinches the nerve roots and which area is affected.

It happens when an upper vertebra slips in front of a lower vertebra. Anterolisthesis is frequently accompanied by pain.

Misaligned vertebrae can pinch nerves, causing pain and disability. Anterolisthesis can affect other parts of the body as well, such as the arms or legs.

Slippage is graded on a scale of mild to severe. Bed rest to surgery are all possible treatments. Spondylolisthesis, also known as anterolisthesis, is another term for anterolisthesis.

The symptoms of anterolisthesis will vary depending on the amount of slippage and the location of the slippage in the spine.

Anterolisthesis can be a constant source of severe localized pain, or it can develop and worsen over time. Pain can be severe and often affects the lower back or legs.

Inactivity and weight gain can result from mobility issues caused by pain. It can also cause bone density and muscle strength loss. Other areas of the body’s flexibility may also be compromised.

Symptoms of anterolisthesis include:

  • pain and poor posture
  • pulsating or tingling sensations
  • weakness
  • muscle spasms
  • inability to feel hot or cold sensations

Severe cases:

  • loss of bladder or bowel function
  • difficulty walking and limited body movement

Anterolisthesis is diagnosed by a doctor based on a physical examination and an assessment of the patient’s symptoms. A reflex test is usually included in the examination.

To confirm a suspected anterolisthesis diagnosis, X-rays, CT scans, and MRI scans may be used. These imaging techniques are used to look for bone defects, as well as to evaluate injuries and nerve damage.

Following diagnosis, the next step is to determine the extent of the damage. The grading scale below is used to determine the severity of the condition and the appropriate treatment.

  • Grade 1: less than 25 percent slippage
  • Grade 2: 26 to 50 percent slippage
  • Grade 3: 51 to 75 percent slippage
  • Grade 4: 76 percent or more slippage

Anterolisthesis is frequently caused by a sudden blunt force or fractures. These can be the result of trauma, such as in a car accident or a fall. Sports injuries can also be a contributing factor. Aging and degeneration also play a role.

Anterolisthesis is treated with rest, medication, therapy, exercise, and, in some cases, surgery. When necessary, decompression surgery and spinal fusions are performed.

Non-surgical treatment for mild cases of anterolisthesis, according to some sources, is effective in about 80% of cases. If the bones are not pinching any nerves, the back pain may never return after treatment.

There is a risk of permanent nerve damage when nerves are pinched as a result of bone slippage. Even after treatment, this can result in ongoing or recurring back pain.

According to some researchers, surgery is effective in relieving symptoms in most severe cases of anterolisthesis.

Very professional job handling my accident claim. I had some ER bills, and some visits to my ortho after (and various other bills that kept coming in). I was afraid I was going to get stuck owing money, but Doug Goyen took care of the case and had everything paid, including compensating me for the injury. Great lawyer IMO. I felt like my case was taken care of very well. Thx!! Bernard M.
Doug is a great attorney. He took care of my auto accident claim promptly, and answered any questions I had. I also had one of my hospital bills go into collections for non-payment. I was able to contact Doug a year after the accident, and received a copy of the check the hospital claimed they didn’t receive. I highly recommend this guy. David J.
The Law Office of Doug Goyen helped me recovery every bit I was owed on my claim. Very happy I used them. They knew what they were doing, and kept me informed. I felt taken care of the whole way. You wont go wrong using them. Arthur H.
Mr. Goyen helped me take on my own insurance company, the great and mighty Allstate. My prior firm basically dumped me, with a permanent injury because the case didn’t meet their financial guidelines for a settlement. I was a bicycle rider hit by a car driver at an intersection, and Allstate was the company on BOTH SIDES OF THE CLAIM. My own insurance company tried to throw me under the bus to limit their payout! Without Mr. Goyen’s help, I would have been left with NOTHING! I had thousands of dollars in unpaid medical bills, unable to receive treatment to correct the issue. He was unafraid and helped me get the best settlement I could … I am tremendously thankful! Pamala M.
