Spondylolisthesis occurs when a piece of the spinal bone (vertebrae) slips out of alignment and onto the bone below it this can be caused by degeneration of the vertebrae or disc, trauma. Grade 1 spondylolisthesis, or a slipped disc, is a spinal condition that can be very painful when one vertebra slips forward over the other, the result is uncomfortable friction exacerbated by motion.

Isthmic spondylolisthesis: in isthmic spondylolisthesis, there is a defect in a portion of the vertebra called the pars interarticularis if there is a defect without a slip, the condition is called spondylolysis.

The next most likely level is l3-l4, and rarely l5-s1 this is contrary to isthmic spondylolisthesis that occurs most often at l5-s1 as the body tries to capture the unstable segment, the facet joints get bigger and place pressure on the nerve root causing lumbar spinal stenosis. Higher grades of spondylolisthesis may require fusion surgery, but this treatment may not be effective either why l5-s1 is vulnerable to injury article back. Degenerative spondylolisthesis occurs mostly (885%) at the l4-5 level as opposed to isthmic spondylolisthesis, which occurs most often at the lumbosacral level (l5-s1) (846%) approximately 75% of spondylolisthesis occur at l5 on s1 and 20% at l4 on l5. Diffuse mild to moderate degenerative disk disease of the lumbar spine, most severe at l5-s1 is seen chronic defect of the bilateral pars of l5 with grade 1 spondylolisthesis, 97 to 10 mm is identified.
Figure 2: spondylolysis with l5-s1 spondylolisthesis many people with spondylolysis have no symptoms and do not even know that they have the condition there is an overall incidence of 5-6% in the general population, however only 10-15% of those individuals will develop symptoms. This type of spondylolisthesis is most commonly associated with lumbar stenosis that creates nerve root compression and resultant leg pain the isthmic type more commonly occurs at l5-s1 and is related to a defect in the isthmus or pars of the vertebra. The two most common locations of a spondylolisthesis are l4-5 and l5-s1 case examples here is an x-ray of the spine with a spondylolisthesis at the l4-5 level.

Lumbar degenerative spondylolisthesis most commonly occurs at the l4-l5 level, followed in frequency by the l3-l4, l5-s1, and l2-l3 levels the slip occurs secondary to the degenerative changes of the facet joints. A commonly adopted method of grading the severity of spondylolisthesis is the meyerding classification it divides the superior endplate of the vertebra below into 4 quarters.

Grade 2 spondylolisthesis is a term to describe the extent of vertebral slippage in the spinal column specifically, spondylolisthesis is a degenerative spine.
Neurologic exam is usually normal but neurogenic symptoms can arise if the condition progresses to spondylolisthesis medical management conservative treatment is usually sufficient to treat symptomatic spondylolysis and aims to reduce pain and facilitate healing processes. Grade 3 spondylolisthesis treatment typically involves the same conservative methods mentioned above, but if your condition persists or get worse, surgery for spondylolisthesis is an option for this grade. Adult isthmic spondylolisthesis most commonly occurs at the l5-s1 level of the lumbar spine slip progression is relatively rare in adults with this condition and slippage is typically associated with advanced degeneration of the disk below the pars defect.
