What is Spondylolisthesis?

Spondylolisthesis is a spine condition that causes the spine, or vertebrae, to slip forward. The forward placement of the causes the nerve roots within the spinal column to become pinched.

There are two main types of Spondylolisthesis.

Degenerative Spondylolisthesis – Occurs when the joints weaken, allowing a vertebra to slip forward. Nerve roots may become pinched causing pain to radiate to the legs and the feet.

Isthmic Spondylolisthesis – Occurs when vertebral bone fractures, allowing a vertebra to slip forward. This can also pinch nerve roots causing pain to radiate to the legs and the feet.

What are the symptoms of Spondylolisthesis?

The most common signs and symptoms of Spondylolisthesis include:

  • Back Pain
