Spondylolithesis Causes and Symptoms

Symptoms of Spondylolisthesis

You can have this spinal condition and never actually experience any symptoms; the vertebrae may not move far enough out of place to cause you any pain. However, some patients with spondylolisthesis experience symptoms such as:

  • Pain that moves down from your lower back to your legs
  • A numb or weak feeling in your legs
  • Trouble walking
  • Pain in your back or buttock that gets worse when you bend or twist
  • A loss of control over your bladder or bowel functions

If you are experiencing a loss of bladder or bowel control, it’s important that you seek treatment from a medical professional right away.
