Spondylolisthesis is a back injury involving a forward slipping of one vertebra over another and is most commonly seen in children between the ages of 9 and 14. It is also more common in sports that have a lot of strain on the back for example throwing events, wrestling, weight lifting and gymnastics. The risk of forward slipping in people over the age of twenty five is very small. It is usually the fifth or bottom lumbar vertebrae that is involved by slipping forward over the S1 (top bone of the sacrum).
