Spondylolisthesis occurs when a disc in the spine slips forward or backward, moving its original position. If this condition becomes aggravated, it can result in spinal stenosis, or compressing of the nerves.
The causes of spondylolisthesis vary. Degenerative disc disease and arthritis of the spine are the most common causes of this problem, though spinal trauma and continuous strenuous activities are also leading causes of spondylolisthesis. The most common symptoms of spondylolisthesis include pain in the lower back, stiffness, muscle tightness, and pain that radiates into the buttocks and thighs. Tenderness near the source of the pain is also common.
