General & Family Physician Dr. Joey's  Response
Hi there,

Conservative measures(braces, corset and pain killers) help only people with no nerve compression or minimal activity limitation. The person you mentioned seems to be having a severe spondylolisthesis ( which is the slipping of a vertebra-L4 in this case- over another vertebra, L5).

Its most likely that the orthopaedician would suggest surgery since that offers the best chance of recovery from severe activity limitation.

Regards,
Joey
