Spondylolisthesis occurs when of the 33 vertebral bones that make up the spinal column slips forward on the adjacent neighboring vertebra. This condition can cause back and leg pain, as well as other symptoms. Spondylolisthesis can gradually cause a deformity of the lower spine, narrowing the spinal canal. This condition is most often due to degenerative/arthritic changes of the spine, but may also be caused by trauma or cancer.
