Spondylolisthesis is a condition in which a bone in the back, called a “vertebra,” slides forward over the bone below it. This condition, Treatable at MidAmerica’s Palos Hills and Mokena clinics, most often occurs in the lumbar spine, or lower back, and can result in nerve root damage leading to back pain, numbness, weakness in the legs, or in some rare cases, loss of control over bladder and bowels. Occasionally, this condition may exhibit no symptoms at all.
