This displacement can compress the spinal nerves and cause pain, numbness, and weakness. It is most common in the lower back but can also occur in the neck.

Symptoms of Spondylolisthesis

Symptoms include lower back pain, stiffness, numbness or tingling in the legs, muscle tightness, and difficulty walking or standing for long periods. In severe cases, it can lead to loss of bladder or bowel control, or possibly dysfunction in the reproductive organs.
