Many patients with spondylolysis are asymptomatic. Of those with symptoms, approximately one-quarter are associated with spondylolisthesis.3 Pain is usually limited to the low back. If the pain radiates, it is usually to the buttocks or the back of the thigh and is often from hamstring tightness rather than lumbar radiculopathy. With associated higher grade spondylolisthesis, however, radiculopathy becomes more common due to associated foraminal stenosis.

Spondylolisthesis is the actual slipping forward of the vertebral body (the term "listhesis" means "to slip forward") (Fig. 3). It occurs when the pars interarticularis separates and allows the vertebral body to move forward out of position causing pinched nerves and pain. Spondylolisthesis usually occurs between the fourth and fifth lumber vertebra or at the last lumbar vertebra and the sacrum. This is where your spine curves into its most pronounced "S" shape and where the stress is heaviest.
