Listhesis of L4 over L5
Hi Doctor, I am Priya from Chennai. My mother-in-law is suffering from severe back pain and it was observed that she has degenerated listhesis of L4 over L5 with canal stenosis. It was adviced by ortho specialist to do a surgery. Is there any way that we can cure this problem without surgery? Please help me. Thanks, Priya
