Spondylolisthesis is a condition in which one spinal vertebra slips abnormally over another vertebra, typically at the base of the spine. In some cases, this abnormal slipping may lead to your spinal cord or nerve roots being pinched or irritated.
Spondylolisthesis can be caused by a variety of factors and is often seen in athletes and children that play high-impact sports. These types of sports can create small fractures in the vertebra. Over time, the fractures weaken the joints of the spine and allow for slippage to occur. Spondylolisthesis is also caused by congenital defects, accidents, trauma, aging or arthritis.
