Dr. Kevin is back for our 53rd podcast. This time we will be talking about Spondylolisthesis. Spondylolisthesis is anterior displacement of a vertebral body relative to the adjacent inferior vertebral body. It is a common condition of young athletes that can present with intermittent back pain.

Diagnosis is based on imaging with lumbar X-Ray being the gold standard. Be aware of the risks of imaging the spine, however. You have a high chance of findings that are not related to the patient’s symptoms.
