Introduction. The spondilolistesis is one of the most frequently problems found to ex professional women gymnastics. Lack of proper treatment causes serious disturbances to dynamic and static activities of backbone, on short, medium and long term (including surgery) with a major impact on social and professional life of those women.
Methods. The research took place on 10 ex professional gymnastics women, 22 to 28 years old, with clinical diagnosis of retrolistesis L5-S1. All patients have hyperlordosis and scoliosis with primary curve on lumbar level. Treatment consisted in bilateral extension-rotation manipulation, manipulations of sacro-iliac joint and central pressure on the S1 level. Clinical evaluation and X- ray examination guided the 6 week’s treatment with 3-4 interventions/ week. Results. Due to treatment, we observed that clinical symptoms vanish and on final X- ray examination we observed a significant improvement in backbone’s statics.
Conclusions. The treatment determined a positive evolution of retrolistesis, evidenced by clinical and radiological examination. The results allow us to conclude that vertebral manipulation is efficient in rehabilitation of ex professional gymnastics women’s retrolistesis.
