271 Possible Causes for Abnormal Gait, Spondylolisthesis

  • Lumbar Radiculopathy

    She subsequently underwent right L3 and L4 TFESI for physical examination findings concordant with radiographic right foraminal stenosis at L3-4 and L4-5 with L3-4 spondylolisthesis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This may cause patients to experience difficulty walking and difficulty sitting down for prolonged periods of time.[lancasterortho.com] Spondylolisthesis : Vertebra slips forward on the lower vertebrae. Spinal Stenosis : This is narrowing of spinal canal.[epainassist.com]

  • Spinal Cord Lesion

  • Lumbar Spinal Stenosis

    Methods: We performed a literature search in Pubmed/MEDLINE using the keywords "lumbar spondylolisthesis" and "decompression surgery."[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Previously, she walked 2 miles (3.2 km) a day; now she has difficulty walking two blocks and standing up for more than 15 minutes at a time.[nejm.org] This can cause difficulty walking or standing up straight, numbness or tingling in the areas below the pinch, and, in extreme cases, weakness in the legs.[livestrong.com]

  • Lumbar Spondylosis

    However, lower thoracic degenerative spondylolisthesis may develop secondary to intervertebral disc degeneration.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] If the spinal cord or nerve roots become pinched, you might experience: Tingling, numbness and weakness in your arms, hands, legs or feet Lack of coordination and difficulty[mayoclinic.com] walking or maintaining proper posture Neck-Related Symptoms: Shoulder blade pain; headaches at the base of the head; dizziness; or “crunching” sensations while rotating the[newyorkcityspine.com]

  • Osteoporosis

    […] the presence of osteopenia, or bone loss, but cannot be used to diagnose osteoporosis Radiographs may also show other conditions, such as osteoarthritis, disk disease, or spondylolisthesis[emedicine.medscape.com] The most consistent predictors of future falls are clinically detected abnormalities of gait or balance (likelihood ratio range, 1.7-2.4).[doi.org] Spinal compression fractures may lead to difficulty walking and/or loss of balance leading to an increased risk of falling and breaking a hip, or other bones.[spineuniverse.com]

  • Sacral Fracture

    An increased pelvic incidence is associated with a higher degree of spondylolisthesis in the lumbosacral junction, and increased shear forces across this junction.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Clinical presentation was mainly low back pain, pelvic pain, and abnormal gait.[bmcpregnancychildbirth.biomedcentral.com] Adequate pelvic fixation was performed to permit substantial reduction of the spondylolisthesis.[spineuniverse.com]

  • Sciatica

    For spondylolisthesis and spinal stenosis, surgery is superior to physical activity up to greater than 2 years follow-up.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Diagnosis Examination in a patient with suspected lumbar (intervertebral) disk disease may feature the following: Abnormal gait Abnormal postures Decreased lumbar range of[emedicine.com] Pearson AM, Lurie JD, Tosteson TD, Zhao W, Abdu WA, Weinstein JN (2013) Who should undergo surgery for degenerative spondylolisthesis?[doi.org]

  • Spinal Cord Compression

    CONCLUSIONS: We report the first case of thoracic spondylolisthesis and spinal cord compression in diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Cervical myelopathy is a syndrome of difficulty walking, hand clumsiness, arm weakness, and/or numbness/tingling caused by compression of the spinal cord.[uncmedicalcenter.org] Spinal cord compression can cause neurologic symptoms—such as pain, numbness, or difficulty walking.[spineuniverse.com]

  • Cervical Cord Compression

    Imaging showed spondylosis and spondylolisthesis without any spinal canal stenosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Spinal cord compression can cause neurologic symptoms—such as pain, numbness, or difficulty walking.[spineuniverse.com] Many times, spinal cord compression is a result of another degenerative spine condition, such as a herniated disc, bulging disc spondylolisthesis or bone spurs.[laserspineinstitute.com]
