Brief Answer:

Detailed Answer:

I have read your query.

Antero or retro lysthesis,cannot be reversed by exercise alone as it increase only muscle tone or power so that muscles can take excess jerky effects while doing daily works.

For lysthesis to be reversed you need to have surgery.

If its of low grade or grade 1 then no surgery is required as with back strengthening exercise muscle will help.

Although painkillers are required.

If grade is high with neurological involvement then only surgery is required.

One thing more at old age lysthesis is due to degenerative processes for which I advise exercise.

I hope you got the answer.

Hi, I am 22 years old and since about 8 days I have had a throbbing pain under my right breast . At first it did not feel like part of my breast nor my lung and I thought it could be a muscle tension , but then the pain started to get a bit worse reaching sort of near my back and up my breast. I am not sure what would have caused this. I fell over about a week ago but this fall was not that hard. Also I have had a cough for about 5 months now, could it be related to that? Thanks.

I have a significant hard lump at the base of my skull and to the right. I have been seeing a neurologist and chiropractor for over a year for tension headache and overall muscle tension in neck and shoulders. I had an MRI and the neurologist said it came back normal. However, the lump does not feel like any other muscle knot I've had, and it feels very hard, like bone, except it sticks so far to the right and there is nothing similar on the left side. Any insight to what this might be?
