Spondylolisthesis Treatment Tip: The Importance Of Staying Proactive

spondylolisthesis treatment tip stay proactive

One of the keys for staying pain free in my personal battle with spondylolisthesis is staying proactive.

In my opinion this is something that many people who suffer from spondylolisthesis or spondylolysis fail to understand.

A few years ago I had no clue how to stay proactive. I didn’t exercise, stretch or improve my stability mainly because I had no idea what to work on. I simply waited for the pain associated with my grade 1 spondylolisthesis to set in and then I tried to manage it the best I could. Sometimes the pain lasted weeks and sometimes it was brief.

It wasn’t until I learned to take preventitive measures and become proactive about my spondylolisthesis that the pain began to subside and stay away.

From one spondylolisthesis patient to another, I ask you a simple question………

What do you do to stay proactive against your spondylolisthesis or spondlolysis?

Do you wait for the pain to happen and then scramble to find relief or do you take actions daily to try and improve your body so it can perform and operate at optimal levels?

Those who do nothing and simply wait for the spondylolisthesis pain to begin would be reactive.

More than likely the pain is almost constant with occasional days of slight relief.  But due to your body’s improper movement, tightness, weakness and instability you are a ticking time bomb for spondylolisthesis pain.

Perhaps you have performed several spondylolisthesis treatment plans in the past. You might have made some slight progress, but once you returned to your daily activities, job or lifestyle the pain was quick to return.

Those who take action by seeking proper treatment then staying on top of their improvements by constantly improving their weaknesses are proactive.

Instead of waiting for the spondylolisthesis pain to return, those who take proactive measures are preparing their body for what the day provides.

Proactive people are consistent with their various forms of spondylolisthesis exercise.  They are always planning ahead and attempting to do whatever they can to keep the feeling of being pain free.

Spondylolisthesis Tip Proactive

Those who are proactive also have a much greater chance of long term relief when compared to their reactive counterparts. Instead of living in fear of their next flare up, they are enjoying life without pain.

First things first, you have to get your pain under control by seeking a proper spondylolisthesis treatment plan that looks at your body as a whole and addresses your specific needs.

Once you get your pain under control, continue to work on your progress weekly and do NOT think to yourself the problem is fixed.

Its’ more than likley your spondylolisthesis took years of improper movement and stress to develop, it will not just dissapear with a few simple stretches and exercises.

Ask yourself, are you proactive or reactive?
