  1. LOVE Bob and Brad, the most famous physical therapists – on the internet ! Superheros for those of us living with back pain. 💓 Thanks fellas !

  2. Thanks fellas! Grade 1 Spondy L4-5 here
    You have helped me live with this condition without fear and my pain is down to about 2 from 9. It's taken about 6months I am so grateful.
    Love the wedge!

  3. I have this too (Spondylolisthesis grade 2 just like Brad). I just found out a few months back so this video was very helpful. Thanks.
    As a side note, I saw you struggling with the pronunciation again so I thought I'd tell you my new trick in remembering it. The word "LIST" is in the middle of the word. I did add another "T" but, that's so I could emphasize the word "list". Here's how it looks:

  4. I really enjoy watching your videos. You guys give good, practical advice. I got my PT degree from UW-Madison (many years ago) and live on the East Coast, so your accents bring back great memories of Madison.

  5. This is the craziest thing. I had a skiing accident when I was 14 and fractured 3 lower vertebrae. When I was 17 I was diagnosed with spondylolesthesis while going to follow up doctors for pain. Didn't get the surgery and life went on. A week ago I injured my lower back enough to go to urgent care. They said it was a sprain just gave me meds and sent me along. yesterday I told my bf that I had been diagnosed with this and I wondered if it had flared up if possible. I check you YouTube this morning and saw this and almost spot out my coffee. I couldn't believe y'all were talking about it! Thank you so much and thanks to God

  6. I shanked a plastic football off the side of my foot when I tried to punt it. I was 12 when it happened. That was over 40 years ago.

  7. Would a chiro drop table maneuver work to reposition the vertebrae so it’s aligned with the bottom one then object prolo or prp stuff in there to make sure the ligs heal in that position?

  8. Thanks Bob & Brad, I arrived with Scoliosis all my life and the Back adjustment & Stretching videos have been a life saver. My pain level is now managed without any meds. Thank you both very much!!!

  9. My Spondy and I thank you both for bringing this condition to the forefront. When I was diagnosed with Grade 1 many years ago, I cried all the way home because the Neurosurgeon told me a fusion was the only answer? A second opinion from an Orthopedic surgeon gave me the nerve pain relief I needed. Couldn’t stand for more than 2 minutes without left leg going numb all the way to the foot and excruciating pain. Because the slippage narrowed the opening for the nerve was the problem along with stenosis. It’s an unending condition to live with but I won’t give up. Still very active but unable to walk or stand for too long, like Bob. The back gets tired and hurts. I hope this helps someone else reading this because the slippage causes a narrowing for the nerve to flow thru. Thanks again for all your tips! 💕Annmarie

  10. My pt and my chiro had no idea what this condition was when I told them I had it. Side note, is it true press ups are not good for this ?

  11. I have recently been diagnosed with this condition same L4 on L5 like you. What about sitting all day long for work. Can you give suggestions for how to sit properly to support this condition and not make it worse. Thx !

  12. Thank u for the video. I have a recent diagnosis of spondy plus congenital missing fusion on the other side. I am in so much pain and wish for surgery instead. Is it a better option?

  13. "stabilise the spine to prevent it slipping further" but can we push the vertebral back in the original position?

  14. I have this condition. It’s level one but still taking a lot of energy out of me. My biggest problem is leg pain. Usually on my sheen and ankle. Any suggestions or solutions?

  15. I have hypermobility syndrome and spondylolisthesis at the L5-S1. Sleeping, even with a bolster, is getting more and more painful. I don't get leg pain but lots of lower back pain. All 3 medical opinions I have received so far have told me that a fusion is my only treatment option. Any tips on sleeping better?

  16. I injured my spine playing baseball and swinging for the fences. Swung the bat so hard I gave myself a spondylo. Bringing my knees to my chest for about 2 mins or so will bring relief during a flare up for me. Great advice here. Thanks guys!!

  17. I KNOW this is what I have been suffering from and it has been increasing pain wise within the last year and I am a heated a yoga instructor and I believe square hips splits was the catalyst to this flare that has seemed to be so prolonged.

    My question is WHOM do I see first to be diagnosed with this? What specialist?

    Thank you guys this was such a breath of fresh air – I have been going to a chiropractor and just diagnosed with an anterior pelvic tilt with a distended sacrum .. but I HAVE ALWAYS KNOWN it was more than this and chiropractic work has done nothing and I am a very active fit person so I need to get this figured out ASAP.
    Sitting for long periods of time as a night nurse before I chose the career path of becoming an RYT I would have to bring a donut to sit all night bc the pain was so severe.

    I refuse any pain medicine so holistic is my preferred method. I live in Kansas City Missouri GIVE A GIRL SOME REFFERALS!

  18. Is there anyway by which i can get the slipped bone i.e. ( Spondylolisthesis) to it normal position and cure it completely as before.or surgery is only option to make it normal.
