Click the white PLAY button to start video.

 

Small bones, called vertebrae, align to form the spine in your back.  A healthy spine supports the body, while allowing movement.  Spondylolisthesis occurs when age or injury causes a vertebra in the lower back to slip forward and out of position. 

Spondylolisthesis may not cause symptoms.  Spondylolisthesis can cause back or leg pain.  The majority of people with symptomatic spondylolisthesis are treated successfully with pain management and restoring function.
