The condition can be degenerative in nature, meaning the vertebral discs and joints wear out over time. Generally this type of spondylolisthesis occurs in people over the age of 40.
Symptoms associated with degenerative spondylolisthesis include low back pain, leg pain, and sensations of spinal instability where bending or lifting motions results in a sensation of the back “giving out”.
Spondylolisthesis can also be caused by trauma such as a sports-related incident or fall and is generally seen in younger people age 8 to 15. This type of spondylolisthesis is referred to as isthmic spondylolisthesis and involves an actual spine fracture, which results in one vertebrae slipping forward on the vertebrae below.
