Spondylolisthesis takes place when a disc in the spine slips forward or backwards. The vertebrae within the spine can move out of position and this is called Spondylolisthesis. If this condition becomes aggravated, it can result in spinal stenosis, or compressing of the nerves.
Causes of Spondylolisthesis may vary. Degenerative disc disease and arthritis of the spine are the most common causes for this problem. Trauma to the spine or continuous strenuous activities are also a leading factor of Spondylolisthesis.
Symptoms of pain in the lower back, muscle tightness, stiffness in the back, and pain that shoots to the buttocks and thighs are the most common symptoms associated with spondylolisthesis. Tenderness at the location of pain can also be expected.
