Description

This is a developmental defect where the bone and vertebra does not fully fuse and join together.

Causes

This is a congenital defect.

Standard Treatment

Monitor the problem, exercise, restrict jumping or lifting, surgery if severe.

AK Approach

The lumbar spine and pelvis are examined to determine the individual muscle strength of the individual muscles that support the area. The general posture is evaluated to determine if the angle of the pelvis is abnormal contributing to increased forces on the lower lumbar spine. Corrections are aimed at normalizing and reducing these forces. Normal muscle strength and flexibility are the aims of the individualized treatment program that is developed for the patient.
