How is spondylolisthesis diagnosed?
Your healthcare provider will do a physical exam and ask you about your symptoms. You will then likely need an imaging scan to confirm the diagnosis.
What imaging tests will I need?
- Spinal X-ray helps healthcare providers see if a vertebra is out of place.
- CT scan or MRI scan may be necessary to see the spine in more detail or to see soft tissue such as discs and nerves.
