Lumbar Spondylolisthesis Overview:

  • Lumbar spondylolisthesis is a spinal condition where one vertebra slips forward over the vertebra below it in the lumbar (lower) spine.

Causes of Lumbar Spondylolisthesis:

  • Degenerative Spondylolisthesis:

    • Typically occurs due to aging and degeneration of the spinal discs and joints.

  • Isthmic Spondylolisthesis:

    • Result of a stress fracture in the pars interarticularis, a small piece of bone connecting the facet joints.

Signs and Symptoms:

  • Lower Back Pain:

    • Common, especially during movement.

Diagnosis and Evaluation:

  • Clinical Examination:

  • Imaging Studies:
