Dislocated L5, sciatic problems

July 2011, I was diagnosed with a dislocated L5. Last year I could stay active up to 5 hours befor it started really hurting, feeling pinched(stuck). The first two years I had sciatic problems. Anyway, I now can only go a couple hours befor it starts hurting. I no longer have the sciatic problem, but feel some problems in legs, although I have had a diagnosis of arthritis , so not sure if it s that. Help!!!

Orthopaedic Surgeon 's  Response
Welcome at HCM.

It looks from your details that most probably you may be having listhesis at L5 -L4 region.This looks like that-

Due to this you are having stretching of nerves in back.This can later on create more problem to you.

You should consult to a orthopedic surgeon for this.

At present start wearing a support for your back like lumbo sacral corset.

If this problem is severe then this should be operated.

Hope this will be helpful for you.

With best wishes.
