Adolescent spondylolisthesis

In adolescents and teens, spondylolisthesis usually occurs in athletes subject to repetitive hyperextension of the lumbar spine. In girls, this is frequently encountered in gymnasts and softball pitching.

In boys, football is common.

In these youngsters, cessation of sports for several months usually produces resolution.

Surgery is sometimes performed for patients who are unwilling to discontinue athletics.
