What is Spondylolisthesis?

Spondylolisthesis is a painful condition that occurs when one of the vertebrae in your spine slips forward onto the vertebrae bone below it.

This often happens at the base of the spine as the lower back takes a lot of pressure from activities like lifting heavy objects or twisting the torso. Spondylolisthesis can be caused by a range of factors, including traumatic injury, genetics, or just simply getting older.

If you think you might be suffering from spondylolisthesis, it’s important to speak to a specialist so you can work together to find the right pain management and treatment for you.
