Spondylolisthesis implies slippage of one vertebra over the next one, resulting in a painful back. The condition over one side of the face or jaw, often precipitated by eating, brushing teeth or touching. The underlying cause is an internal conflict between an abnormally placed artery and the trigeminal nerve (nerve that carries sensations from the face). While drug treatment and local injections can provide partial, short-term relief, surgery by microvascular decompression (separation of the offending artery from the trigeminal never) is the most effective and safe modality of treatment, which has the best results. Patient remains pain-free and drug free after surgery.
